Caymus Vineyards Special Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

$319

The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon-Special Selection appears to be the best Caymus has produced since 1986 and 1985. Two thousand, six-bottle cases will be released in February, 1994. The wine offers a saturated, dark purple color, and a rich, spicy, oaky nose backed up by generous quantities of jammy blackcurrants. Ripe, highly extracted, and full-bodied, with copious amounts of sweet tannin and layers of fruit, this is a knock-out, flamboyantly-styled Cabernet for drinking over the next 15 or more years.

I'm a fan of the early to mid 90's Caymus SS and this is no exception but the fruit is waning. Drink up.

I have had a number of this vintage during the years and it always shows well. SS from 1976 to 1995 are great wines Later still good but too much on the ripe side for me.

This was a very good bottle. Perfectly matured red! not past its prime. Fullbodied and still some fruit left. Woow!

Beautiful example of an older Cali Cab. Fully mature & holding up well. Very elegant, floral with good spice.

Mature nose and palette. Understandably showing its years. Still has a good fruit profile. Fruits have faded, leaving leather and spices. Black tea notes also present. Tannins and acidity still solid. Drink em up.
