Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the most renowned producers of Cabernet Sauvignon in California – Highly extracted, with rich, deep flavors of berry fruit and spice, with complexity and balance, and promising ageworthiness.

Caymus Vineyards:
Caymus Vineyards was founded in 1972 by Charles F. (Charlie) Wagner, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner and their son Charles J. (Chuck) Wagner on the family's Rutherford property.

Aromas of sweet bing cherry and ripe, lush plum. The ripe fruit brings about abundant yet soft tannins.

A fleshy showy youngster putting ripe fruit and jazzy oak on display. An impressive 2011 that reverberates with ripe cherry plum and currant notes that will be at their most appealing early on as this veers toward dryer tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020.

The newest vintage of Caymus Cabernet from the Napa Valley has now been released. Consistent vintage to vintage, the latest release from Caymus looks to be fabulous.

Although tasty the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is slightly less intense and powerful compared to the 2010. It reveals supple tannins abundant black fruit and spice notes and an easy-drinking yet seriously endowed medium to full-bodied personality. Drink it over the next decade. - Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Magnum, 1.5 Liters A truly legendary wine, Caymus Special Selection is a wine that Cab lovers simply can't get enough of. Introduced more than 30 years ago, Special Selection is a vivid expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. Starting with the foundation of their Rutherford estate vineyard and then securing contracts for long-term farming control of vineyards across the valley, Caymus has been able to solidify the extraordinary character and over-the-top quality of this very special wine vintage after vintage. Robert Parker just scored this 2011 95 points saying "A brilliant wine, and one of the stars of the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection boasts aromas of blueberry pie, blackberries, cassis and white flowers. This full-bodied, velvety textured, delicious 2011 is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a terrific success for the vintage." Limited!

Charlie Wagner founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972 and has made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon every year since its founding. Caymus focuses entirely on this variety and the winery's 60-plus acres of estate Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley's Rutherford District forms the foundation of Caymus' Cabernet every vintage. And every vintage Caymus Cabernet is snapped up by Cab lovers and collectors while it's lauded by critics. This 2011 just scored 92 points in the Wine Spectator who said "A fleshy, showy youngster, putting ripe fruit and jazzy oak on display. An impressive 2011 that reverberates with ripe cherry, plum and currant notes that will be at their most appealing early on, as this veers toward dryer tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020."
