Dark blood red core, the color continues to the rim with little change and the wine is completely opaque. The nose exhibits plenty of cassis and blackberry with hints of oak and overripe plums, it also has a slightly smokey character begging to peak through its dense fruit core. On the palate it hits you with sweetness at first which soon gives way to a seamless array of ripe dark berry fruit. Full bodied, and concentrated with elegant tannins and balanced acidity. Very well balanced wine at this point of its life, the finish carries on for a good 25 seconds, glycerol is high here which leads to a velvety mouthfeel. Excellent

About This Producer


Caymus Vineyards was founded in 1972 by the Wagner family in Napa Valley's Rutherford district. The Wagners originally immigrated to the San Francisco Bay area from Alsace in the late 1880s. The winery produces both a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and since 1975, a Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, differentiated by superior fruit and additional barrel aging. The name, Caymus, has dual origins: it is both the name of a subgroup of Mishewal-Wappo Indians that lived near the present-day Yountville, and the name of the Mexican land grant known as Rancho Caymus, given to George Yount in 1836, which eventually became the town of Rutherford. The winery maintains 60 acres of Estate Cabernet Sauvignon as well as buys grapes from select Napa Valley growers. The Wagners' goal is to create a balanced wine that is approachable at release, but will improve with bottle age. Caymus takes great care in its vineyard maintenance, farming each block according to the specific needs of its soil type, climate, slope and orientation. The vines are also thinned in order to concentrate the flavor and structure within the grapes. Caymus also produces a white blend called Conundrum, and other small production varietal offerings.
