Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

$105

Cabernet is king at Caymus. During the decade of the nineties, there has been a succession of sumptuous, rich, concentrated, lavishly-wooded, cassis-flavored Caymus Cabernet Sauvignons. I tasted a number of different component parts of the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon, all of which - at least from an aromatic, flavor, and textural perspective - resembled the 1994 Napa. Interestingly, when I saw Chuck Wagner in late October, he was not yet sure whether there would be a Special Selection in 1995, which is surprising in view of the vintage's high quality.

Wasn’t sure how this would turn out as it was a recent purchase and couldn’t vouch for prior storage. It was excellent. Would love to compare this vintage with a more recent one in the future.

Really showing well. Classic Napa character with great integration. Almost even fresh.
