2007 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1051881 96 points Wine Spectator

 A firm, ripe, muscular wine that’s tight, deep, structured, intense and concentrated, serving up a mix of ripe currant, cassis, plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit that’s clean, pure, complex and layered, with touches of anise, cedar and black licorice. Ends with chewy tannins. *Highly Recommended* (JL)  (7/2010)

95 points James Suckling

 Seductive nose of blueberries, mulberries, mint, tar, cinnamon, and cloves. Full-bodied, with a firm tannin structure. Very round and polished with a firm long finish. Layered and beautiful. Don't touch it for at least three years.  (4/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection (100% Cabernet Sauvignon, now bottled earlier than in the past) exhibits an inky/blue/purple color in addition to sweet aromas of cassis, graphite, licorice, tobacco leaf and toasty oak. Bold, flamboyant and opulent, it should drink well for 15+ years. (RP)  (12/2010)

93 points Vinous

 Bright, full ruby. Very sexy nose combines blackberry, plum, mocha, graphite and black pepper, plus a suggestion of reduction. Very suave and fine-grained, showing an attractive restrained sweetness as well as a slightly wild aspect to its plum, dark berry and licorice flavors. The slight reductive quality carries through on the palate but this wonderfully silky wine blossomed dramatically with 24 hours in the recorked bottle to offer more pliant, exotic flavors of dark berries and chocolate. Finishes with ripe, dusty tannins and terrific length. A bit powerful in a 2007 way but finishes with excellent grip. This is probably not going to be a 30-year-wine but give it some aeration if you plan to open it anytime soon. Drink through 2029. (ST)  (5/2017)

Jancis Robinson

 Suave and plush in the typical Caymus style. To European palates, it may seem too soft and hedonistic, yet this wine improves remarkably with cellaring. 17/20 points. (LM)  (12/2010)

The 2007 Special Select Cabernet showcases everything you ever wanted from a California Cab. It is the quintessential promise to your thirsty palate. The nose reveals aromas of spice, vanilla, toasty oak and cola. The mid-palate is seamlessly integrated with polished tannins and wild berry and black cherry fruit. It is one of the most velvety, fleshy and intense Cabs I have tasted this year! Grab one before it's gone!
