Caymus Vineyards' 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most desirable and relatively keenly-priced Cabernets in the entire Napa Valley; with great structure, balanced by real finesse and a velvety texture.

Caymus Vineyards was established by the Wagner family on their own ranch and produced their first vintage in 1972. Today, the estate remains 100% family-owned and stretches over 350 acres of prime Napa Valley land. The Wagners took the name Caymus from the Mexican land grant known as Rancho Caymus, given to George Yount in 1836, which encompassed what eventually became the town of Rutherford and much of the surrounding area.

"In typical Caymus style, this Cabernet is deep mulberry in colour with aromas of blackberry jam, cassis, currant and cocoa. Straight out of the gates it delivers a hefty punch of fruit to the palate followed by tantalizing notes of anise, cocoa, cherry vanilla, tobacco and a hint of pepper. While abundant in tannins it retains a softness that guarantees a silky mouthfeel and sultry finish.” BH Wines
