A blackberry hue, with scents of rich leather, cooked caramel, berries and forest floor. Youthfully forward on the palate, supple and appealing with rich concentration. Tannins are abundant, yet fine, and persist throughout a layering of textural sensation. The richness of this wine correlates with the fine dust of the Napa Valley soils. Finish expresses oak (French barrel) and Caymus fruit-forward impressions. This wine is tannic, rich and squared off by the signature suppleness.
The down-to-earth spirit really pays in the long run. In 1972, Chuck Wagner accepted his parents, Charles and Lorna's idea to establish a winery together. The Wagner Family believes that keep you head down and work is the best innovation. The results? Caymus Special Selections become the only wine in the world that is elected as "Wine of the Year" by the Wine Spectator Magazine TWICE for the both 1984 and 1990 vintages. Till today, the Wagner Family is still there, keeping their heads down and making extraordinary wines.
