Dark color. Sturdy, rich and concentrated, with complex currant, black cherry, tar and plum flavors. Lacks the finesse and extra dimensions of the Special Selection, but still a very impressive, concentrated wine.--'81/'91 California Cabernet retrospective. 22,000 cases made.

We drank the Caymus 1991, The Dead Arm 2005 and Beringer Napa 2004 on the annual golf trip. No surprises on the tastings - The Caymus has held up well, the color was slightly brown on the edge but in real good shape, the body was medium, the fruit and oak was light and enjoyable. We had this one first as if it were a Pinot to start the evening. The Dead Arm was the third wine the first evening and it was awsome! I love Oak and it had plenty, the fruit was also well pronounced, the wine was very dry but balanced and the body and color was perfect. The Beringer Napa Cab we drank on the second night as the third wine. It definately had a nice oak flavor, Very enjoyable! Ii is less balanced then the Dead Arm. Of the last two the Dead Arm seemed to have plenty of life left and the Beringer was drinking at it's peak.
