Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2017 - Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2017, a blackberry hue, with scents of rich leather, cooked caramel, berries and forest floor. Youthfully forward on the palate, supple and appealing with rich concentration. Tannins are abundant, yet fine, and persist throughout a layering of textural sensation. The richness of this wine correlates with the fine dust of the Napa Valley soils. Finish expresses oak (French barrel) and Caymus fruit-forward impressions. This wine is tannic, rich and squared off by our signature suppleness.
"At Caymus, we go to great lengths in vineyard selection, farming practices and winemaking techniques to make sure we produce a high quality, consistent Napa Cabernet every vintage. I took over winemaking duties in 1984 after twelve years of on-the-job training – being born a farmer and producing our grapes into wine was naturally a thrill. I believe that what I started with my parents in 1972 continues to improve 40 years later."
