"I am old enough to remember Chuck Wagner and his father, who I first met at Caymus in the late seventies. This is clearly one of Napa Valley’s iconic wineries, as well as one that, amazingly, never went through a bad patch. Obviously, no matter which generation is in the driver’s seat (or should I say tractor’s seat), Caymus Vineyard knows how to deliver flavor and deliciousness. They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I’m sure that like most vintages of Caymus, it will last for 20-25 years. Amazing!"Wine Advocate 96 points

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2014 Product #32277 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2014 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2014

Special Selection is just that – a special bottling made from the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Wagner family each vintage.  And, in a vintage Robert Parker calls “the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,” the “best barrels” are very fine indeed.  It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors.  In 2014, though, the size is matched by remarkable purity, balance and even finesse.

On first opening, the wine is dark, deep and intense, with a rich core of blackberry, black currant, and graphite accented by notes of fresh herb, mocha and Aisan spice. On the palate there's plenty of plushness and density to the dark fruit, cocoa, and spice flavors with a beam of graphite/lead pencil running from front to back.  Smooth as silk across your palate until a nicely grippy tannic spine emerges on the blue/black fruit and graphite finish.  With air, the wine broadens, deepens, and turns smooth as slik with a finish that just keeps sailing on and on. A great wine to enjoy now or cellar for 20+ years.

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Product #31507 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013

Special Selection is just that – a special bottling made from the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Wagner family each vintage.  And, in a vintage Robert Parker calls “the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,” the “best barrels” are very fine indeed.  It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors.  On release, the wine can be almost overwhelming in its rich, creamy, density but there are plenty of the firm (but very ripe) tannins needed to support long-term aging.

"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."Wine Spectator 95 points
