Wineboy rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Can their be anything more pleasant than the regular Caymus? Why, the Special Reserve that's what !! In premium tastings of California wine Caymus is always the benchmark against which I measure other $100 - $250 wines and Caymus usually wins. Special Reserve takes it to an even higher level. Hugely aromatic with cassis and berries, while the oak is more apparent on the palate than the nose. If you want power - this is it. If you want smooth and approachable tonight - this is it! Treat yourself and only your best of friends.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
