Tough day, so I’m reaching for the comfort food. That’s Caymus in a glass.

My last bottle of this vintage, and I’m going to miss it. Comfort food for wine lovers, though some of the recent Caymus vintages are too contrived.

I know it's not cool to like Caymus but I do. That said, the special selection is rarely any better than their regular cab.

Perfection! Plums just like I expected, velvety and rich.

Still very big and bold and borderline over tannic and grainy but beginning to develop secondary characteristics. Tell-tale Special Select mocha and warm chocolate notes, bramble--really rounding out. This should hit it's stride in a couple years.

Caymus Special Selection 2007 from a Magnum. Bastante cerca de la perfección. Memorable!

Celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary with this lovely bottle, which was a wedding present from very good friends. Jammy, velvety and very well balanced with a hint of caramel on the finish. One of the best wines we have had.
