My wife and I had the pleasure of trying this wine at a wine party.  Before this I had never involved myself with the pleasures of premire California Cabernet.  This was was full of flavor.  Although it was excellent with food, I could have enjoyed this wine on its own for it's complexity.  The body was full and rich.  The berry fruit was intense in this wine.  This wine was outstanding.

Not sure what the fascination is

Sampled 12/09/07. The wine was closed, but not as much as the Staglin it was next to. This wine is young and it lacks the "wow" factor, but it pretty darn good. Some nice raspberry elements up front with blackberries later. This wine has more internal consistency to it than the mid 90`s vintages and will likely appeal to more people on a higher scoring level across the board than say the 1995 or 1997 did. This wine will age reasonably well, but I sense it won`t be at the top of its game 12 years from now. Come back in a few to see how it is doing.

Special selection of what??!!

A mere face in the crowd. Nothing "special" about this good but ridiculously over-priced Napa cabernet wine. I had always stayed away from this over-hyped wine but figured with the stellar reviews I was hearing about its 2001 vintage I bought a bottle. I can`t imagine ever buying another "special selection" from Caymus again. Hence, tasting notes are irrelevant.
