Caymus Vineyard

Caymus Vineyard

The Wagner family has been farming in the Napa valley since 1941 although it was not until the 1960s that Charlie Wagner planted grapes for wine production. Camyus`s fame is based on its Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, which was first produced in 1975 and is made entirely from fruit grown on a 14 acre plot on the famed Rutherford Bench. Caymus's Special Selection is aged in barriques for up to four years & bottled without fining or filtration. It is an immensely rich full-bodied Cabernet, which is approachable in youth yet benefits substantially from a few years bottle ageing. Initially the wine was made by Randy Dunn - he left in 1986 and now runs his own highly successful Howell Mountain winery, and today the wines are made by Charlie's son, Chuck.
