Over forty years ago, Charlie and Lorna Wagner embarked on an incredible journey with their son Chuck - starting a family winery in the center of Napa Valley. Now in its third generation, Caymus continues to produce world class Cabernet Sauvignon.
"This wine exemplifies our style of Cabernet out of a great vintage—deep color, rich, concentrated and balanced. 2012 celebrates 40 years of producing our pride and joy, Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon."
- Chuck Wagner, Owner/Winemaker
steak, ribeye of beef, grilled meats
So, so rich and so ripe, this is a red wine for those love powerful and satiny Cabernets. Made from one of Napa Valley's top vintages, the wine actually drinks pretty well now, if served with grilled ribeye of beef. Pleasingly rounded in the aftertaste.
Fruity & Smooth
Fruit forward wine that is very enjoyable now. Excellent long finish. Very approachable for new red wine drinkers. I suspect that professional wine reviewers will be taken aback by how jammy and fruit forward this Cab is.
Big & Bold
Way too young; I should have waited to even open one bottle. That said, it was good but it will be substantially better in years to come. I'm sure it will be five stars in 2018.
