Drink now or cellar for up to 11 years. Decant 2 hours.

Rich ruby in colour, this Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon certainly lives up to its name. The nose is pronounced with ripe blackcurrant, blackberry and strawberry interlaced with anise and liquorice. On the palate, the ripe fruit explodes with blackcurrant, plum, raspberry, while an earthiness is present along with the vanilla inflections from the oak aging. The wine is fantastically balanced with mature, well integrated tannins mixing perfectly with the high alcohol and great acid. The wine is complex, multi-faceted and a dream to enjoy. The finish is long, persistent and ends with a beautiful chocolate and mocha note.

Fantastic on its own but even better with a joint of beef, venison, game, hoi sin ribs and sausages.

Caymus Vineyards are renowned for their superb Cabernet Sauvignon (amongst other things) and they have developed new techniques that add richness, flavour and characteristics that can’t otherwise be achieved. Known as “hang time”, the grapes are left unusually long on the vine – even risking the crop in the event of an early winter. This technique helps to increase colour, mature the tannins in the wine and develop rich and deep seated flavours, textures and complexity in the wines. Other vineyard management techniques used include crop thinning, thus allowing more sunlight to get to the grapes, and delayed harvest to allow ultimate ripening allows Caymus to produce superb, ultra premium wines.
