Sweet chocolate, mocha, espresso, coffee and smoke on the nose of this full-bodied Californian Cabernet from lavish oak aging. Fleshy sweet black plums and blackberries. Full-bodied and supple. Pair with a juicy steak.

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrea Shapiro - Andreas Wine Cellar rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A fortunate pleasure to taste this solid and intricate Napa Valley cab. Deep dark opaque inky purple. Very layered and complex with developing pronounced aromas of cherry, plum, chocolate, red licorice, vanilla extract and anise. Also - highly extracted and compressed dried fruit evident in the bouquet. Pronounced flavours reveal cherry plum, prune, toast and pepper heat. Medium plus acidity and finish with a full body and lingering tannins. Pair with herbal beef mushroom tartare, venison and wild game. 92 points November 2017
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A big oak and vanilla monster but with heavy-weight tannin and a long finish. These days, I am not a big fan of Caymus cab anymore. I try every year and I always get the same conclusion.
If you like big bold napa cab, this is the go-to wine! I don't think aging will change the tasting profile that much but the wine can definitely last more than 15+ years
|Melanie Lloyd, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is a complex dark purple wine with aromas of dark berries, predominantly blackberries, as well as red licorice, violet, dark chocolate, and menthol. There are velvety tannins on the palate as well as a good acidity level, with flavours of sun soaked dark berries and chocolate. There is a slight illusion of sugar and a nice long finish.

|Caymus Special Selection (2014) is a classic California Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. This is an exceptional wine with a black cherry compote nose, blueberry, mulberry and ripe black cherries on the palate; gorgeous spice, chocolate notes wrapped up with a zesty acidity. There are firm, velcro tannins on this wine and it needs some time in cellar to mellow out. Drink now or hold for 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews|
