2007 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #1053582 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This 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. (JL) Inner quote mark (7/2010)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

K&L Notes

You've heard that 2007 was a superlative vintage in 2007, now's your chance to taste for youself with one of the Napa Valley's most esteemed wines, vintage after vintage. Caymus introduced the "Special Selection" more than 30 years ago, and it has consistently recieved raves from critics and customers alike. Winemaker Chuck Wagner describes the 2007 as having a concentrated bouquet of dark berries and cassis that open up to reveal black cherry, currant, blueberry, chocolate, spice and smoke flavors on the palate. A broad mouthfeel with firm texture at this point, this fruit-filled wine holds it's power through the long, velvety finish. Wine is due November 2009!
