Sommelier: Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

Caymus wins the California Cab countdown. It’s “The Best Damn Cabernet in California,” says Wine Spectator. And the Wizard of Wine, Robert Parker, rates the vineyard’s 40th-anniversary vintage 96 out of 100. Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is one amazing red wine that has garnered higher ratings and more awards than any other wine in California history. Full of delicious fruit and cappuccino mocha flavors, it’s crafted rich and ripe around a core of pure power and complex structure. Produced and directed by Chuck Wagner, Caymus Cab has been charming the wine world since 1972. It’s my set point for every Cabernet Sauvignon no matter what country of origin. And this high-end, no-stress red delivers always well beyond its $60 price. Supersize your New Year with the impressive large-format, one-liter bottle from Alexander’s Market. Or head down Highland Road to French Market Bistro, where, incredibly, Caymus Cab is offered by the glass. Bears repeating: French Market Bistro serves Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon by the glass! No pairing advice needed. It’s all about the wine.
