Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 89

The Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, which spends significant time in oak, can be one of California's most riveting wines. First made in 1975, there have been some exceptionally concentrated, powerful wines that are still young and evolving (i.e, the 1978, 1976, and 1975). The decade of the eighties produced less profound Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignons, with the exception of the 1984 and 1985. Since then, the wine has moved to less of a blockbuster style, with the emphasis on more elegance, without sacrificing the wine's richness and intensity. I have not tasted the 1989 Special Selection, but both the 1988 and 1987 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignons are noticeably lighter and less intense than previous vintages. Nevertheless, the 1987 is still an excellent wine with its rich, oaky, cassis and spicy nose, creamy-textured, medium to full-bodied flavors, and moderately long finish. I would drink the 1987 over the next 7-10 years.

Showing its age with a dry, earthy edge to the cherry, plum and currant flavors, this wine peaked early. Tartness and dry tannins suggest it is fading away.--1987 California Cabernet horizontal. Drink now.

Wine was in remarkable stable condition, still had some tannin. Tadted remints of cherry and coffee. Being decanted it was very smooth but still have style of Caymus.
