The 2001 Caymus Napa Valley Special Select Cabernet Sauvignon 750 ml is from the Napa Valley region of California. Caymus Vineyards has been owned and operated by the Wagner Family since 1972. Using meticulous farming practices, such as leaving the fruit to “hang” on the vine unusually long and crop thinning to control sun exposure, the Caymus wines have abundant, velvety tannins and suppleness that will stun you. Their flagship wine, the Special Selection, is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage and is not produced in difficult years. The Napa Valley cabernet is a bit less precocious, but still big and age worthy. Caymus has been featured by many prominent reviewers, receiving the very highest accolades possible from each agency. This wine will truly impress you.

WA 96 (6/2011): Caymus has been around for so long there is a tendency to under-estimate their wines. However, they have a brilliant track record as evidenced by the decade old 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection. Abundant chocolaty, black currant, licorice and coffee aromas soar from the glass of this perfumed wine. It exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, wonderful opulence, a deep, full-bodied mouthfeel, fabulous depth and not a hard edge to be found. While seemingly fully mature, the supple tannins, expansive fruit and glycerin, depth and overall balance suggest it will keep for another 15+ years.

WS 95 (6/2004): Lots of aromatic complexity, with ripe plum, blackberry, mineral, slate and cedary oak flavors that are rich and concentrated, with ripe, polished tannins and a long, full-bodied finish that echoes mocha and berry flavors. Keeps revealing vivid and thick flavor nuances. Another amazing Caymus Special Selection. Best from 2005 through 2013. ...
