Caymus Vineyards Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 1991
Very special wines can for me have a sense of dual completeness to them. They are complete in the sense of both the wine's character and the wine's emotive impact. On the former, this 100% cabernet sauvignon had beguiling aromatics of anise, intense blackcurrants and cassis. Its palate delivered earnest and long length, with deep and balanced flavours of cassis, anise and earth. On the latter, the wine persuasively put forward its case as to why I ought never consider drinking another wine. Outstanding
Price: Best not to ask in today's dollars.
