Winemaker Notes

Classic Napa Cabernet! A consistent top seller at wine.com from a great vintage, so get it while you can. The color is a deep opaque ruby. The nose gives aromas of ripe, pure black currant (cassis) and black fruit—the characteristics we prize in Napa Valley Cabernet—with compelling notes of clove, toasted hazelnuts, and espresso-roast coffee beans. Subtle secondary notes of vanilla and toasty oak then fold in. The taste is a core of deeply extracted, lush berry fruit underpins the wine during its evolution in the mouth as other flavor layers emerge: bittersweet cocoa, creamy vanilla, cedar and a light touch of mint. The fruit and oak tannins are beautifully knit, reinforcing the overall impression of sweetness. The finish is long and deeply flavored, carrying through the layers of berry and spice notes predicted in the aromas.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator

Packs in lots of ripe, rich, complex Cabernet flavors, gushing with ripe currant, plum and wild berry, turning spicy and revealing pretty oak and herb shadings as well. Long, smooth aftertaste.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Smooth, sleek texture supports this balanced wine, redolent of blackberry, black currant, licorice, toast and herbs. On the finish, it’s plush, long and well crafted, ending with a bright cedary note.

Caymus
As the Wagner family celebrated the 40th anniversary of Caymus Vineyards in 2012, they thought back to 1972 which Charlie Wagner, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner and their son, Chuck, built their winery among the vines planted on the family's ranch in Rutherford, California - the center of the Napa Valley. In 1975, the Wagners produced their first Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, which remains the only wine to have twice been named Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" (1984 and 1990 vintage).

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
