Caymus Vineyards, Special Selection, Cabernet Sauvignon 1981 Caymus Vineyards, Special Selection, Cabernet Sauvignon 1981 Napa u. 3bn, 1vts, signed bottles Lot 797 12 bts (oc) per lot: USD 650-900 I think I first realized that Caymus Special Selection was not only one of the greatest wines made in California, but a very great wine in the context of world wine-making when I attended one of Bipin Desai's vertiginous vertical tastings. The tasting was held in L.A. and we drank the Special Selections from 1975-1990 over some spectacular food at Valentino. I was deeply impressed by the complexity of the wines which, for me, is the real criterion of quality and I was also struck by Chuck Wagner's direct approach, professionalism and zest for life. More recently, in Napa we did a vertical tasting of younger vintages, which was equally impressive. SS. Quantity: 1
