Lot #333. Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2009

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 97 WE.
"So delicious now, you can hardly keep your hands off it. Blackberry tart, ripe blueberry, cassis, milk chocolate, licorice and sweet, smoky cedar flavors flood the mouth, dramatically huge and memorable, and lasting long into the finish. The tannins are obvious, but sweetly ripe and soft. A brilliant evocation of Napa Cabernet, despite a high production level . . . which is about the same size as a Bordeaux first growth. Shows the class and potency this bottling has exhibited for many years, and believe it or not, the price is a relative bargain these days." Wine Enthusiast, 3/1/2012
Provenance: The Rive Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $400
