Winemaker Notes

#44 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016

A rich, dense ruby color, hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and crème de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine-grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins leading to a long, powerful and refined aftertaste that keeps reverberating while maintaining a strong personality. Drink now through 2030.
JS 92
James Suckling
The full-throttle character is here as expected with lots of ripe fruit and toasted oak. Sage and mint. Silky tannins; the ripe fruit dominates. But it shows form and juiciness. Try it in 2019 as it mellows with age.
WW 92
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Where do I begin? When I tasted the 1975 vintage of this wine (in the early 1980s), I was simply amazed. Though I was much younger then, I instantly knew that this was a wine I had to follow; I have indeed done that and tasted nearly every vintage of this iconic Napa Valley wine. The 2013 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet demonstrates the remarkable journey on which this valley has gone—the wines were formerly lighter and more rustic. Ultra-rich and satisfying, the Special Selection continues to fit perfectly into the ever-changing array of Napa Valley's "super" Cabernets. This wine shows a deep and opaque black, purple color; rich and expansive in the nose with concentrated cassis and sweet oak, and even shows a hint of perfume. On the palate, the wine is layered and saturated—attributes that have become synonymous with these wines. The finish is smooth and lasting. (Tasted: May 26, 2016, 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.
