    Ripe and fleshy, with rich plum, wild berry, spice and savory herb notes that are complex, full-bodied and expansive on the palate, ending with firm tannins and a dash of espresso.

    A complex red with plum and wildberry notes on the nose. Firm tannins and a smooth finish. Drinking beautifully now, but fruit is starting to fade. Wouldn't cellar for much longer.

    A lot of blueberry in the first few drinks. A little more fruit forward than I prefer but overall a good wine. More oak and dust on the second glass. I prefer the aroma to the taste. Looking forward to trying it tomorrow after it site a day.

    Another very good Caymus cab. Plush, layered and powerful. Hard to believe this is a |second| wine.

    Caymus 2007 Napa and Back us 2005 with Christmas Dinner. Both are holding up well - good body, clarity and color. We drank the Caymus first which was dry with light fruit from start to finish. The backus was a little more round and had a deeper dark fruit content. Both very enjoyable.

    Just had my last bottle with dinner. Still deep, dark berries and that luscious vanilla finish from the oak.

    Loved the wine. Offered to my friends and they commented how smooth, woody, dark flavors they tasted. Loved how easy it was to drink.

    Much better on Day 2 as oak relented a bit

    Not nearly as good as the first few bottles (may be time to let it lay down for a while?) but still the cream of the 2007s at this price point.

    One of the all-time best we've tasted. Very fruit forward, wonderful nose, smooth ruby like color with a weighty mouth feel. Distinct, aromatic, tastes of rose and strawberry.

    Opaque garnet in color- this typical CA Cab is just that... typical of a CA cab. Big, chewy, jammy, and thick! Its nose is full of cocoa, nutmeg, vanilla, and fresh mint. I'd say it was still a tad too young- alcoholy and tightly wound. The mid-palate was chock full of tobacco, spice and cedar. It a long and lingering finish with a coating mouthfeel that lasted for one minute or so. Give it a few more years for optimal taste and experience. Overall, a great wine!

    Prominent fruit on the nose and immediately on the palate. Tannins are harsher than I was expecting - this one might benefit from another year or two in bottle. Starts fruity for a Napa Cab, with a nose of blueberries and cream, but on the palate takes on some more depth, blackberries and (maybe) tobacco? Short finish with a little hint of spice on the back end.

    Ripe, fleshy and rich. Very full-bodied, firm tannins. Dark berry fruit, smooth finish. Can't go wrong.

    Stunning Cab, sophisticated, incredible length, cassis, blackberry,vanilla with some cinnamon spice along with integrated tannins. Very approachable now but has the stuffings for aging. Good buy!

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.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
