1992 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection (a February, 1996 release) is superior to the 1991 and 1990. The 1992 displays an opaque ruby-purple color, followed by huge, full-throttle aromatics offering a blast of sweet, toasty new oak combined with exceptional red and black fruits. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, with not a hard edge to be found ... (RP)
Maturing in color and taste, with a mix of dill, cedar, plum, coffee, pencil shavings and herbal notes. Smooth-textured, offering depth and dimension, with a long, complex finish. (JL)
Robert Parker: "The Caymus Special Selection is one of the most renowned luxury cuvees of Cabernet Sauvignon in California. The price of $100 a bottle is bold, controversial, and has undoubtedly made more than a few enemies. Nevertheless, for a decadent, lavishly oaky, explosively rich, intense, soft as silk style of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is hard to beat."
