CAYMUS VINEYARDS, SPECIAL SELECTION, CABERNET SAUVIGNON 1998

Estimate
US$400 - US$600
Price realised:
US$484
Beschreibung:

Caymus Vineyards, Special Selection, Cabernet Sauvignon 1998 Caymus Vineyards, Special Selection, Cabernet Sauvignon 1998 Napa 2 stained labels, 2 slightly scuffed labels, stained owc Blueberry, blackberry and cassis in equal measure on the nose. Some vanillin from the wood (all French from this vintage on) still there which is normal for the year, where these types of tannin took on oak. Very juicy fruit which shows the great sorting and selection. Such a cassis finish. Superb for the year. SS. Lot 1367 6 bts (owc) per lot: USD 400-600 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
