Buy 6 - 2018 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage : 2018
Country : USA
Region : Napa Valley
Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. We farm Cabernet grapes in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling us to make the best possible wine in a given year. Our Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis, and ripe dark berries.
History of Caymus
In 1972, Chuck Wagner started Caymus Vineyards with his parents, Charlie and Lorna, with a humble plan and an uncharted future. The Wagner family were farmers with deep roots in the Napa Valley – in 1857, Chuck Wagner’s great-great grandfather captained a wagon train to California from Bible Grove, Missouri. Working together for decades, Chuck Wagner and his parents established the family’s work ethic, appetite for innovation, down-to-earth sensibility, and deep appreciation of the pleasures of good food and wine enjoyed with family and friends.
This 2018 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley has heavy fruit and decisive tannins, this charismatic Cab is a perfect match for sumptuous slow-braised beef accompanied by heaps of creamy mash, or something unctuous like a shoulder of lamb. Warm, earthy spices like cumin, coriander and cinnamon also bring out its playful side, and that’s a recipe for a good time in our book.

Very lush and caressing in feel, with a flashy display of creamed plum, boysenberry and açaí berry fruit liberally laced with milk chocolate and melted black licorice notes. Drink now through 2028.
