"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 a range of Napa’s sub-appellations – from Coombsville to Calistoga – with fruit from the valley floor creating lushness and the hillsides providing backbone. Diversification enables us to make the best possible wine in a given year, featuring layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis and ripe berries." —winemaker
"Great aromatic complexity: sweet tobacco, bay laurel and lilac, alongside dark blue and black fruits of gorgeous purity. The wine is broad across the palate with wave upon wave of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit. There’s great density and obvious power to the wine, and savory notes of Kalamata, licorice and anise add deeper complexity. Tannins are sleek, gravelly, and youthful and will allow the wine to age in bottle for twenty years if desired." —winemaker
"A wine born of a memorable year, the 2017 Rudd Samantha's Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty wine that is lively and full of luminosity on the palate. It delivers while young with the potential to develop gracefully for 8-15 years before reaching its peak." —winemaker
"This vintage was a true testament to the strength of our estate sites. On October 9th a fall frost event wiped out most of Eastern Washington, yet our estate blocks that were still on the vine were in absolutely perfect condition. Deep ruby in color with sexy aromatics. Sandalwood, fresh cherry, undertones of vanilla and pencil shavings are framed by plum and underlying hints of tobacco. The wine is elegant with fine grained tannins but does not sacrifice on full bodied richness - absolutely drinking well now but will age through 2041." —winemaker
"Carefully selected from the premier blocks of the Coombsville estate that sit on an elevated bench with volcanic soils underneath. The 2018 opens with fresh aromas of black cherries, black currants and blue fruits with graphite, tobacco, star anise and cocoa powder notes rounding the finish. The Pact is defined by minerality and purity, and its fine-grained tannins and natural acidity ensure that it will last for decades." —winemaker
"Aromas of pine forest, black currant, sage, and vanilla abound. The flavors are saturated with blackberry and currant, complexed with difficult to describe earth notes. The structure is firm, as to be expected of the current forty-year-old, dry-farmed vines, yet balanced. The soft tannins complement the power of the wine." —winemaker
