- Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2012 Product #29551 (In Stock)
Chuck Wagner crafts his Special Selection Cabernet by selecting the very best barrels in the Caymus cellars and allowing the wine a bit of extra time to mature in oak and bottle before release. It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors. On release, the wine can be almost overwhelming in its rich, creamy, density and will show the firm (but very ripe) tannins needed to support long-term aging.
After trying the “regular” 2012 Caymus Cabernet, we know many of you are wondering, “Just how good can Chuck Wagner’s very best 2012 Cab be?” Well, we’ll note that a) Caymus Special Selection is Chuck Wagner’s choice of the best barrels he made each vintage; b) it’s the only wine ever to be named Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year twice; c) Robert Parker hung a 96 point rating on the 2012 Napa Cabernet; and d) Special Selection always ends up 2-4 points more highly rated than the Napa Cab. You do the math! A “do not miss it” opportunity for every fan of the lush, powerful, 2012 Napa Cabs!
