||Caymus Special Selection 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
A truly legendary wine, Caymus Special Selection is a wine that Cab lovers simply can't get enough of. Introduced more than 30 years ago, Special Selection is a vivid expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. Starting with the foundation of their Rutherford estate vineyard and then securing contracts for long-term farming control of vineyards across the valley, Caymus has been able to solidify the extraordinary character and over-the-top quality of this very special wine vintage after vintage. The Wine Spectator just scored this 2010 96 points saying "A seductive style thatís openly fruity, showing supple plum and
black cherry notes, with floral scents and spices, turning creamy and gaining a mocha-espresso-vanilla scent thatís enticing. Finishes with a smooth texture, fine-grained tannins and then another burst of fruit. Drink now through 2025." Limited!

how long can I cellar this wine?
Asked on 5/2/2013 by julie from michigan
I agree with Josh. This wine is 96 points and ready to go now. Kept at the right temperature will help it keep for some more years but not so sure it will improve that much unlike the other Caymus 2010 Cab which has that potential to age well. I have put mine away until at least 2015 then I might think about opening it, but maybe not.
If I were you I would open this one up and enjoy.

This wine is made in a style that's immediately appealing and so it can be enjoyed right now. If you wish to cellar it, hold it up about 10 years.
