Winemaker Notes

The harvest produced red wines of dark garnet color and high quality, with a redolence-suggesting classic Napa Cabernet. For the final month of harvest, daily data, collected in Rutherford, California, reflects extraordinary weather conditions during final stages of grape maturation. These near-perfect conditions allowed all blocks of this late-ripening varietal to mature fully. To me, this wine is highly reminiscent of the 1987 - a wine of opulence that was consumed early on and still holds its vibrancy today. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc comprise the blend of this vintage.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Rich and exotic, with layers of currant, black cherry, espresso, mocha, mineral and herb. Turns supple, all the while maintaining its firm and youthful tannic structure.

Learn about Caymus: the history of the winery and its famed Cabernet Sauvignon.

History of Caymus

In 1972, Chuck Wagner started Caymus Vineyards with his parents, Charlie and Lorna, with a humble plan and an uncharted future. The Wagner family were farmers with deep roots in the Napa Valley – in 1857, Chuck Wagner’s great-great grandfather captained a wagon train to California from Bible Grove, Missouri. Working together for decades, Chuck Wagner and his parents established the family’s work ethic, appetite for innovation, down-to-earth sensibility, and deep appreciation of the pleasures of good food and wine enjoyed with family and friends.

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

Today, Caymus Cabernet is one of Napa Valley’s most celebrated wines. Made from grapes farmed in 8 of Napa Valley’s 16 appellations, the wine has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe tannins – as approachable in youth as it is in maturity. Chuck Wagner continues to make two world-renowned Cabernet Sauvignons – Caymus Napa Valley and Caymus Special Selection. Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is the only wine in the world to be honored twice as Wine Spectator magazine’s “Wine of the Year” for the 1984 and 1990 vintages.
