Winemaker Notes

Aromas of ripe berry (black cherry/blackberry), and cassis. Ripe fruit impressions of what I consider Classic Napa Cabernet... some fresh, youthful, lively qualities balances by barrel-aged suppleness - nearly evolved. In general, there is an overall presence of sweetness and harmony. Rich, weighty, full.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Attractive creamy, toasty oak up-front, with supple currant and black cherry folding in beneath. Though it remains complex on the finish, it comes up shy in depth and added dimensions compared with previous vintages. Grapes are from the sources normally used for the Special Selection, which was not made in '96.

Caymus, Napa Valley, California
Caymus
As the Wagner family celebrated the 40th anniversary of Caymus Vineyards in 2012, they thought back to 1972 which Charlie Wagner, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner and their son, Chuck, built their winery among the vines planted on the family's ranch in Rutherford, California - the center of the Napa Valley. In 1975, the Wagners produced their first Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, which remains the only wine to have twice been named Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" (1984 and 1990 vintage).
