Caymus Vineyards was founded in 1972 by Charles Wagner. The vineyard, situated on the family's estate in the Rutherford District of the Napa Valley, is particularly known for its 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
Their Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has been released every year since the first production of just 240 cases in 1972, with production remaining at the same level since the 1989 vintage. The first Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon was made in 1975 and it is produced from outstanding lots that have been given extended barrel ageing.
Since 1984, Charles Wagner’s son, Chuck, has directed the innovative viticultural practices at Caymus. Renowned amongst wine enthusiasts, both father and son were elected to Wine Spectator’s Hall of Fame in 2001. In 2007, Chuck Wagner also received the Wine Spectator’s ‘Distinguished Service Award’.
