Secret Life of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
by James Suckling on Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 9:27am

"A lunch yesterday with Chuck Wagner at Caymus Vineyards illustrated my point. Chuck is one of the best winemakers and vineyard growers in Napa.  I tasted in the cellar his wonderful Special Selection Cabernet from 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. I preferred the 2008, but all the wines were top notch.  And I love the complexity and suppleness of his wines that clearly are wonderful to drink young as well as with age.  In fact, all the wines I tasted with him will be better with three to five years of bottle age under the belts - and beyond."

Last week, one of our nice customers brought in a bottle of the 2007 Caymus Cab to do a fun in-store side-by-side with the 2008 vintage.  To make this experiment completely fair, we tasted the two vintages blind.  Everyone in the store was predicting the 2008 would not nearly be as good as the amazing 2007.  In a shocking turn of events,  everyone unanimously agreed that the 2008 was more plush, rich and opulent!!

With this final data, we believe that the Caymus Cabernet is one of the most consistent Napa Cabs out there.  Take a look at Wine Spectator's blind-tasted rating history for their past 12 vintages in the chart to the right.
