A special bottle and label for their 40th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon, Caymus is ready to celebrate with this epic 2012 vintage. Charlie and Lorna Wagner, with their son Chuck, launched this winery's legacy as a Napa Valley icon in 1972. Chuck is now the owner and winemaker, and has this to offer: "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, Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
This is a fantastic expression of what Caymus does best. Rich Cabernet with all the nuances of tobacco, fruit and leather. Wonderful from the first sip to the lush mouth feel finish. You'll want to smell it, savor it, and share it. I drank this on my anniversary this year and it was absolutely amazing and capped off an incredible weekend!
no decanting require good right from the bottle, very smooth finish, full mouth feel as good maybe better than special select, so good order more when it was available .

Is it mature enough to drink now?
From world class Cabernet producer, we have the Caymus 40th Anniversary Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Who needs Champagne when you've got an amazingly rich Napa Cabernet like this to enjoy for their 40th?? This concentrated Caymus Cabernet is the perfect companion for hearty meat and lamb dishes. If you're able, wait a bit before sampling this beautiful nectar, and give it some time to develop. Your patience will be richly rewarded with the exceptional quality of this vintage ("great" according to the winemaker)... When that day does come, pour a glass and serve it with a ripe Camembert and some austere water crackers while you consider your energy level for the meal. We think this celebratory Napa red will be spectacular with Spanish beef tenderloin Asturias, pan-seared beef tenderloin steaks which are bathed in a delicious blue cheese-white wine sauce. The rich complexity of the wine will match the decadence of the cheese beautifully.
