A class effort, the rich and voluptuous 2014 Caymus Vineyards Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent effort from a very good to excellent vintage. This wine exhibits a fine mix of black fruits, sweet oak, and some savory spice notes. Its rich tannins suggest more time in the bottle is needed, yet it is almost too easy to consume now. Give it a decade or more, and it should be even more rewarding. (Tasted: August 23, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Pure and rich, well-centered on melted black licorice, spice, cedar and dark berry flavors. Deep and complex, if short on finesse and grace, ending with musclebound tannins. Drink now through 2028.

Brawny tannins meet mild acidity in this powerful, rich wine that’s full-bodied and decadent. Chocolate, mocha and caramel notes are etched into its soft, rounded layers of generous red fruit.

 

A rich, dense ruby color hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and creme de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine-grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.

 

Drink now until 2024, although, this wine should remain interesting until 2034 and beyond. Serve at 60°F. Decanting is not necessary.

Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with roast lamb, a good old burger, succulent ribeye, cooked medium to rare, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
