Caymus Vineyards - Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa Valley (1 L)
Overview: In 1971 Charles F. (Charlie) Wagner and his wife Lorna Belle Glos Wagner asked their son Charles J. (Chuck) Wagner, who had just graduated from high school, if he would be interested in joining them in starting up a winery. If Chuck declined the offer, Charlie and Lorna were planning to sell out of their ranch in Napa Valley and move to Australia. Chuck accepted his parents’ offer to launch the winery, Caymus Vineyards.
The Wagners produced their first vintage in 1972, consisting of 240 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon. Since then, Caymus has focused their efforts in the production of quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Today’s production is 65,000 cases.
Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. We farm Cabernet grapes in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling us to make the best possible wine in a given year. Our Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis, and ripe dark berries.
Tasting Notes: Dark ruby, purple reflections, delicate brightening on the rim. Dark nougat, fine noble oak spice, black berry fruit, a whisper of figs, an inviting bouquet. Full-bodied with a chocolaty-spicy texture, ripe tannins, sweet fruit aftertaste, subtle liquorice and prunes on the finish, already drinking well.
Pairing: Prime rib roast, bison burgers, pork long ribs from the grill
Points: 94, Falstaff
