With bullish tenacity and a fearless approach to new viticulture practices, Caymus has churned out blockbuster Californian Cabs for over 40 years. Its 2018 vintage is no exception. In typical Caymus style, this Cabernet is deep mulberry in colour with aromas of blackberry jam, cassis, currant and cocoa. Straight out of the gates it delivers a hefty punch of fruit to the palate followed by tantalizing notes of anise, cocoa, cherry vanilla, tobacco and a hint of pepper. While abundant in tannins it retains a softness that guarantees a silky mouthfeel and sultry finish.
About the Winery
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.
