The 2020 Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is full-framed and lasting on the palate. This wine excels with aromas and flavors of sandalwood, black fruit, and oak. Serve it with an oven-baked eye of the round roast. (Tasted: July 18, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. Since its founding in 1972, Caymus has become renowned as a consistent leader in the production of Napa Valley Cabernet. Grapes for this wine are farmed in 8 of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling us to make the best possible wine in a given year. Their Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis and ripe berries.
