Caymus Napa Valley 2013 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

Caymus Napa Valley 2013 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, 96 points, poured broadly black with a thin penumbra of Shiraz purple/red, transparent rim ring, and glass bowl of dense clinging legs.
Aromas of black currant, soft floral notes, sea mist, and toasty blackberry were fragrant.
The embracing full body showed good acidity and plush supportive tannins.
Flavors of pepper spices, cherry fruit, licorice, blackberry liqueur, and truffle exploded into life and carried deep into the luxurious finish crowned with a potent 15.2% alcohol.
Caymus (SS) was a Christmas gift, but the current average price is $171.00, and NHLS sells it for $194.99, though it's not on their web page.

  1. The "embracing full body" and "luxurious finish" probably come from the residual sugar.
