2002 Caymus Special Select Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5 LTR 1.5 liter

Quick Overview

The rich, dark-ruby color of this wine offers a promise of the depth to come. Aromas and flavors of sweet, fully ripe black currants form the “big heart” of this wine, with notes of mocha/chocolate, black cherry, anise and spice interweaving seamlessly, first in the nose and then more explosively in the mouth. The texture is surprisingly velvety and supple for a wine of this extraction and density, attesting to the fine grain of the tannins and the balance of fruit and oak. The finish holds pure and true for long minutes, the impression of ripe fruit lingering to the end.

2002 Caymus Special Select Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5 LTR 1.5 liter

Of the two Cabernet Sauvignon wines made at Caymus winery, Special Selection has always been considered a slightly more complex wine that historically has proven to be more age worthy. There’s truth to this belief - in retrospective tastings the Special Selection has outlived its sibling, the “Napa Valley” Cabernet Sauvignon. As a rule, the Special has had higher tannin content, and although the tannins are fine-grained and soft even in youth, they continue to provide grip and texture over the years.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 96

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: A fabulous effort, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection boasts an inky/purple color to the rim as well as a gloriously exuberant bouquet of creme de cassis, graphite, vanilla, and charcoal. Dense and full-bodied, with fabulous purity, sweet tannin, decent acidity, and perfect equilibrium, this is a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 15+ years.
