CAYMUS 2012 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "40TH ANNIVERSARY" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

It’s a very exciting time for the Wagner Family at Caymus Vineyards with 2012 marking their 40th Anniversary. While many Vineyards have changed ownership over the years, Caymus remains family-owned and operated and has grown from a 240-case production to one of Napa’s most iconic wineries. We have watched this beautiful story unfolded over the years and are proud to say we were the hip wine shop that introduced Caymus to Southern California over 3 decades ago!

Production was down in the Napa Valley for the 2009-2011 vintages but as luck would have it, 2012 happened to see near perfect conditions with heavy yields. Robert Parker scored the 2012 Napa Valley’s vintage with a hefty 96 point score noting- “2012, which I had the opportunity to taste at 12 months of age, looks spectacular. This is a vintage for followers of classic, big, fruit-dominated Napa wines. Not a hot year by any means, it was warmer than 2011 or 2010. It was also not a rainy year, and with the exception of a few heat spikes, it was trouble-free. The resulting wines are exactly what we have come to expect from top years in Napa Valley - exuberant and boisterous, filled with oodles of ripe fruit, exceptional purity and fleshy, succulent, mouthfilling, crowd-pleasing personalities of considerable character and richness. The low acidity, sweet tannins and high, but not excessive, alcohols have resulted in a great vintage that appears to be a no-brainer when it comes to consumers interest. Moreover, compared to 2009, 2010 and 2011, 2012 produced a very generous crop size - the largest since 2007.”

Winemaker's notes- "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."
