Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons – a “Napa Valley” and “Special Selection”. Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through “hang time” – meaning the fruit hangs on the vine an unusually long time to develop suppleness, increases color, and “hang time” matures the tannins of the grapes. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.
