Caymus, Special Selection, Cabernet Sauvignon--Vintage 1985
1 double-magnum per lot
CAYMUS Caymus Vineyards was founded in 1972 by Charles Wagner, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner and their son Charles Wagner Jr., on the family's Rutherford property. The first Cabernet Sauvignon was made from the 1972 vintage. Their first Special Selection was made in 1975. Selected from only the best grapes, the Special Selection has, as a general rule, higher tannin content, making it more age-worthy. This consignment offers a rare opportunity to test what the critics have been saying all along: old Special Selection is a wine with great ageing potential, on par with many of Napa's finest Cabernets.
