Robert Parker’s Highest Rated Caymus Since 2004

2008 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon
$1/bottle Shipping on 6 Bottles or More

The first vintage of Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon was 1975 and they continue to produce one of the finest Cabernets in all of Napa.

The 2008 is a worthy successor to the tradition of quality, as it received 94 point scores from both the Wine Spectator and Robert Parker. This is the first vintage since 2004 that both awarded it scores of 94 points or higher.

The 2008 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon can be drunk early or cellared for 10 to 15 years. That makes it a good combination for us curious ones who cannot resist taking a bottle from the cellar a little earlier to see how it’s drinking. Plus, there’s no denying the fact Caymus just looks good on the table!

Compared to other top Cali Cabs it’s well priced at $99.77 per bottle, with $1 pre bottle shipping on a purchase of six bottles or more!

Robert Parker 94 Points-- The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection is the first example of this cuvee to include Merlot (about 14%) in the blend. The Merlot component has given the wine a cocoa/chocolate nuance to its black currant, licorice-infused fruit. The tannins are velvety soft and the wine is beautifully textured and full-bodied. It is ideal for drinking now and over the next 15 years.

Wine Spectator 94 Points-- Beautifully crafted, rich, intense and powerful, yet supple, graceful and polished, offering a generous core of spicy blackberry, black licorice, wild berry and light cedary notes. Full-bodied and expressive, this is both approachable now and sure to improve for several years. Drink now through 2020. 15,618 cases made. –JL
