Caymus Vineyards 'Special Selection' Cabernet 2011
 
 
By Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2011 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection

A Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Red Table wine from Napa, North Coast, California, USA
Review by Robert Parker
Wine Advocate # 209 (Oct 2013)
Rating: 95
Drink 2013 - 2025
A brilliant wine, and one of the stars of the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection boasts aromas of blueberry pie, blackberries, cassis and white flowers. This full-bodied, velvety textured, delicious 2011 is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a terrific success for the vintage. Though the Wagner family is not quite the pioneer that Louis Martini, Charles Krug, Beaulieu Private Reserve, Ridge Vineyards and a few others are, they have long farmed and made the wines at Caymus Vineyards.

Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Special Selection
Score: 93
Country: United States
Region: California - Napa Valley
Vintage: 2011
Date: May 15th, 2014
This shows so much dark chocolate, tar, blackberries and plums. Toasted oak. Coffee. It's full-bodied but there is a thick tannic texture. Chewy but juicy and fresh. Better in 2016 but so attractive now.

2011 Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection Napa Valley
Winery: Caymus Vineyards
Style: Red Wine
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Napa
By Stephen Tanzer
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 14
(15.00% alcohol): Saturated dark ruby to the rim! A brooding black hole of a nose, offering aromas of cassis, blackberry, blueberry, violet and licorice. Densely packed and thick but with harmonious acidity framing the intense, youthfully medicinal flavors of dark berries and chocolate mint. The exotic chocolatey oak quality accentuates this glyceral cabernet's almost porty character. Finishes with serious building tannins that appear to be supported by the wine's impressive density. Very ripe for the vintage. 92(+?) Points

Vineyard Notes
Here at Caymus we are fortunate to reside in the Napa Valley, so we like to keep things simple. Our quality is the result of a singular focus on cabernet grape growing in a climate where the soils and vines respond very well. While itʹs true that microclimates and various soils produce distinctive nuances, I personally do not believe that one sub‐appellation or vineyard expresses a singular character or quality that can be deemed superior. In my mind, there is little to worry about when a healthy vineyard is well kept, the vigor and crop load are controlled, and there is moderate sunlight. I am a Rutherford man, as were my forefathers who arrived here in the late 1800s and played an integral role in shaping our region’s winemaking legacy, but I’m sure they would agree with me when I say that great wines are now found throughout the wide spread of our Valley. Over the years, I have come to appreciate the greatness of vineyards spanning all the way from Coombsville to Calistoga, and from Howell Mountain to Atlas Peak. We simply have to look at some of the Wine Spectator scores from the 2010 vintage to witness all that Napa Valley has to offer. For example, Bryant ‐ 95 points, Lewis Reserve - 96 points, Schrader To Kalon ‐ 96 points, Harlan ‐ 96 points, Screaming Eagle ‐ 96 points, and Caymus Special Selection - 96 points. These are outstanding scores, but more notably they are sourced from very different regions throughout Napa, both mountain and valley wines. Personally, I am proud to have played a role in the California wine movement over the past forty years. We no longer look to the Old World as a benchmark because we are setting new quality standards of our own. I strongly feel that here in America we are producing some of the greatest wines in the world, not all from the Napa Valley, but when it comes to Cabernet we tend to reign supreme. Over the decades, changes and very compelling realizations have come to light. Big wines that are highly oaked with bitter tannins and over‐the‐top opulence have become passé. The best Napa Cabernets are refined, richly textured, accessible, exciting and balanced. Iʹm not going to sugarcoat it; 2011 was a very challenging vintage as it was one of the coolest we have seen in a long time. This year our experience came in handy as we still managed to produce a quality wine, despite the rain‐spattered vintage. It was a chilly spring with occasional showers that resulted in sporadic set on most clusters, giving us a much lower crop yield. This was followed by wet weather throughout harvest time, but we managed to bring in our fruit with several passes through most vineyards, making picking decisions based on small zones of ripeness. It was a stop‐start harvest that posed many challenges for us and did not come to an end until winter began to set in on November 5th.

Tasting Notes

A rich, dense ruby color, hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and crème de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine‐grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.
