Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Napa Valley, California, United StatesCaymus Special Selection is always a selection of the best barrels that play to a style constantly pushing the limits of richness and concentration, in this case, clocking in at 16% alcohol. The nose is slightly cooked and raisiny with plenty of cassis, chocolate, and coffee spilling onto the palate. Blackberry jam, pipe tobacco and brown spices line a richly dark, dense tannin finish. It is only made in the best years, but I wouldn’t mind if this was throttled back a bit. That said, this unabashed New World cabernet has a huge market following, hence its $240 price tag.Tasted: 10 May 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
