Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. Cabernet grapes are farmed in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling Caymus to make the best possible wine in a given year.
An alluring plum red, with scents of dark cherries, chocolate shavings and violets. A hint of Napa Valley dust comes through on the nose, which has an equal balance of fruit, oak and earthiness. Enters the palate with a soft suppleness, peaking with flavors or cassis, dark berries, lavender and nutmeg. Texturous and fills the mouth. The exceptionally long finish displays a harmony of grippiness, vanilla oak and lush fruit.

COMMENTARY: One of the most popular Cabernet producers in the marketplace. This wine continues to be a consistent winner. The 2016 Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon shows up as another fine effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine serves up a bevy of berry aromas and flavors. Its layered and rounded palate make it a delectable choice with a thick and mouthwatering grilled ribeye.
