Winemaker Notes

The 2013 growing season was another great one in Napa Valley. Deep, red and opulent in color, this wine opens with the vibrant scent of dark cherry and blackberry, subtly layered with warm notes of vanilla. The palate is explosive, bright, balanced – cassis at the center, with flourishes of cocoa and sweet tobacco that provide nuance and continually shifting points of interest. Velvety meshed tannins make this wine lush yet structured, with a texture that grabs attention, expands and unfolds. Fruit, oak and acidity are held in balance throughout the long, drawn-out finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A beautiful ripe, plump, fat and opulent style of Cabernet Sauvignon that Caymus has pioneered, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color, loads of juicy blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, low acidity and no real evidence of oak, but a nice, plush, full-bodied opulence. This is irresistible, especially for a Cabernet Sauvignon coming in at 14.9% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next decade or more.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Rich, smooth and creamy, with vanilla, mocha, dark berry and licorice notes, offering a compelling mix of subtly sweet flavors set in a graceful, supple texture. Drink now through 2025.

Does the Wagner family have a secret formula? I have tasted almost every vintage since 1973 (I missed the 1972, which was a difficult year in the Napa Valley) and seen this wine has evolved like few others. In the first decade of its existence, the wines were very classic in style. Now 50 years later, the wine is as smooth as silk and more popular than ever. What has happened? How would I know? All I can say is: The Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet is one of the wine world's most popular ultra-premium red wines and satisfies an incredible number of upscale wine lovers and now takes Napa Valley Cabernet into a new direction of super ripe fruit, rounded textures and ultra-lush finishes. Yes, this is a solid performance once again, but not the same as when I first tasted the incredible 1973 vintage. Deep ruby, purple color; youthful aromas with lots of wood and vanilla; medium bodied, quite rounded and textured on the palate, precocious and wood-laced on the palate; dryish, may have a hint of threshold sugar, good balance; loaded with vanilla, ripe currants and almost smoke in the flavors; long finish, wood and ripe fruit predominate in the aftertaste. I think I see a plate of roast duck, with a side of tart, sweet plum sauce coming my way. Drinking now. (Tasted: June 17, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

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.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
