Caymus Vineyards' 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.

"Deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon springs from the glass with lifted crème de cassis, violets and chocolate box notes plus hints of lilacs, raspberry leaves, anise and cardamom. The perfumed black fruit preserves and chocolate-laced notes completely pack the full-bodied palate, with soft, velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and very spicy. Definitely one for hedonists seeking immediate gratification.” eRobertParker.com
