1987 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #900342 Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, which spends significant time in oak, can be one of California's most riveting wines. First made in 1975, there have been some exceptionally concentrated, powerful wines that are still young and evolving. Since then, the wine has moved to less of a blockbuster style, with the emphasis on more elegance, without sacrificing the wine's richness and intensity. Both the 1988 and 1987 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignons are noticeably lighter and less intense than previous vintages. Nevertheless, the 1987 is still an excellent wine with its rich, oaky, cassis and spicy nose, creamy-textured, medium to full-bodied flavors, and moderately long finish (RP) Inner quote mark (10/1993)

K&L Notes

For many Napa Cab lovers, including Robert Parker, Caymus holds a special place. As Parker wrote for Wine Advocate: “Few wineries in the world can boast such an enviable record of consistent excellence as that of Caymus. There is no doubting that Cabernet Sauvignon is King at Caymus. For nearly twenty years this winery has excelled at producing boldly-flavored, ripe, concentrated regular bottlings and lavishly oaked, big, spicy, luxury-priced Special Selection offerings.” (10/1993)
