Item Description

“A deep red tinged with magenta, this wine has a serious nose with scents of mixed berries, toasted oak, aged leather, and the whiff of smokiness from an outdoor grill. The entry entices with rich fruit, as blueberries mingle with traces of strawberries cooked down to their essence. Then the palate yields to textural softness, filling the mouth with luxurious dark chocolate and notes of vanilla and brown spice. A hint of sweet oak infuses the finish, which trails off with the taste of ripe berries and the granular texture of wood.”-Winemaker Notes

“More than 40 years after he and his parents founded Caymus Vineyards, Chuck Wagner undertook a new project: creating a Cabernet Sauvignon from a broader stretch of California farmland. He was guided by the memory of enjoying family meals, always accompanied by a good glass of wine. Chuck wanted to create delicious Cabernet that would be more widely accessible, made from places worthy of exploration and discovery.
And so, Bonanza Cabernet Sauvignon was born, celebrating the “bonanza” or fortune to be found in our great state. As Chuck puts it, “We are proud to be making this multi-vintage California-appellation Cabernet Sauvignon. Do you have any idea how much fun this is for a seasoned winemaker?” Bonanza calls back to a simpler time, and Chuck’s hope is that it will invite people to enjoy good wine as a simple pleasure of everyday life.”-Winery Notes

Caymus Vineyards

View all from Caymus Vineyards
Caymus VineyardsCaymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons – a "Napa Valley" and the venerable "Special Selection". Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" – a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.

Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus Napa Valley is more representative of a standard Cabernet of Napa Valley, as it is a bit less precocious than the Special Selection, but still delivers big. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Both the "Napa Valley" and "Special Selection" Cabernets are produced under the winemaking hand of Chuck Wagner.

My GoTo Cab!

"I discovered this wine while on a business trip last year. Unfortunately I couldn't remember the name of the wine until I stumbled across it on a website. This is definitely my favorite "everyday" Cab! It is full bodied and goes great with steak and salad or even to enjoy alone at the end of a long day."
