Caymus Napa Cab Sauv 40 Anniversay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"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 Vineyards remains 100% family-owned by the Wagners. Charlie, Lorna Belle, and Chuck worked together as a remarkable team for over 30 years building Caymus Cabernet. Today, Chuck, his two sons, Charlie and Joe, and one daughter, Jenny, have joined the family team. Farming grapes remain the priority with the family farming about 350 acres of choice 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." - Winery

On our Caribbean cruise. Enjoyed this bottle with a steakhouse dinner. Had a mini freak out because the cork had gone wet at the top. It was still a solid bottle. Smooth tannins. Sexy deep dark smell with a taste of dark deep plums and mellow berries. I absolutely love this wine. Plus it my Great Danes name so what better addition to a dark steakhouse with flavorful fillet

One of my favorite wines. Smooth, deep, with a lasting and rolling finish on the tongue. Deep berries and a subtle smokiness are lasting on the palette. You can never go wrong with this wine!

Nose is sweet fruit and smoked meats. This wine already has some bouquet truffle mushrooms, vanilla style oak. The palate is creamy richness with nuances of leather and a cocoa-style fine grain tannin. The flavors and structure of this vintage are consistent with the Caymus style spice, toast, cassis fully rich, yet supple.

On the palate, this Cabernet is rich with sweet, ripe tannins, expanding to a greater breadth of refined textures. The flavor profile includes dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, mocha, leather, brown spice, cedar, vanilla and sweet licorice. The stand out qualities of this wine are its balance, supple texture, approachable grip and earthy notes.

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 90 Points ** Only 4 in Stock **
