Rare Reserve Cabernet from Delectus. Limited.
96 Points Robert Parker: "The Cabernet Sauvignon French Wedding is another blockbuster with an inky/purple color, but with slightly softer tannins than the Boulder Falls or the Bear Crossing. Sweet and rich, with notes of crème de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spice box, this full-bodied, thick, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon will be ready to drink in 7-8 years. Unlike its siblings, Boulder Falls and Bear Crossing, this should only have 30+ years of aging potential! Delectus Winery is going against the prevailing winds in trying to make wines for future generations. Kudos to them."

New release of Caymus' 2016 Cabernet now available!
previous vintage 94 Points Robert Parker: "The Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a dense opaque purple color, a kiss of blackberry and cassis fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel with ripe tannin and a long finish. It is very Caymus in its immediate accessibility, but has plenty of staying power and depth. This is lush, full, intense and pure. Drink it over the next 15 or so years."
Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons – 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. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine’s fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.
