This stunning, inky/plum/purple-tinged 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection boasts a glorious fragrance of creme de cassis, licorice, toasty oak, spice box, cassis and vanillin. Full-bodied, opulent, flashy and irresistible, this endearing, plush, exuberant, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon is 3-5 years away from full maturity, yet it is already complex and rewarding. It should last for another two decades. (RP)
Tasting a bit riper than one might expect of a Caymus Cabernet, this expansive bottling is both impressively concentrated and still somewhat direct and waiting to unfold into greater richness and range. Its curranty fruit and loamy, coffee and creamy oak notes all add to its promise, but what is lacking for the moment is any of the immediacy that would mark it for near-term drinking even though that is the part of what the winery was seeking when it made the wine in a riper style. Its focus is spot on and its depth is without question, and we would be inclined to give it a quiet rest of some four to seven years. *Two Stars*
