Product DescriptionWine Advocate Review
They appear to be immune to some of winedom's less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of creme de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I'm sure that like most vintages of Caymus, it will last for 20-25 years. Amazing! Drink 2014-2039. (215, The Wine Advocate, 30th Oct 2014)
"This wine exemplifies our style of Cabernet out of a great vintage - deep color, rich, concentrated and balanced. 2012 celebrates 40 years of producing our pride and joy, Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon." - Chuck Wagner, Owner/Winemaker
Wine Tasting Notes
A dark, scarlet red color, with powerful aromas of sweet ripe cabernet grapes. Initial impressions are fantastically appealing, brooding to expansive textural sensations of finely grained cacao tannins. The whole of the wine is balanced, rich, expressive and impressively complex. The backbone of fine tannin and sweet ripeness is a carryover from perfectly mature fruit.
