Allow Vintage Substitution(?) 

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.

Caymus Vineyards was launched by the Wagner family in 1971. The Wagners took the name Caymus from the Mexican land grant known as Rancho Caymus given to George Yount in 1836, which encompassed what eventually became the town of Rutherford and much of the surrounding area. Two types of Cabernet Sauvignons are produced: a "Napa Valley" and the venerable "Special Selection." Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time"—a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes.
