Item Description

Grapes for this Malbec are grown in the Andes Mountains of Argentina and transported to Caymus, where we use our winemaking techniques to create a style that is dense, dark and supple. Falling outside standard labeling rules, Red Schooner does not include a vintage date but is known by the voyage from which it traveled (Voyage 9 is the 2019 vintage). Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine features flavors of French oak and soft tannins.-Winemaker Notes

Red Schooner started with appreciating good Malbec. We considered making this wine from vineyards in Napa Valley, but decided we should source the grapes from the place that is most widely recognized for having ideal conditions for this varietal. We found ourselves asking: Could we create a wine at Caymus Vineyards our family winery using fruit from another part of the world? That question inspired the idea for Red Schooner, a "Red Wine of the World" that is about the thrill of voyage and discovery.
This Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains of Argentina and shipped chilled to Napa Valley. We then produce the wine in our Caymus style dense, dark, powerful and supple. Falling outside standard labeling rules, Red Schooner has no vintage date, but instead is known by the voyage from which it has traveled. Charlie Wagner, Red Schooners director of winemaking, notes that he loves this wines lush softness as well as the spirit of experimentation that lies behind its creation.-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.

Great Wine Great Store, Great Staff

"I've been looking for this specific wine since I tried it in April. Empire Wine had a few bottles in stock, ordered the difference to make up a case and the process seamless, Picked it up last week and it was better than the first time, the team in the store was great to deal with. Your team rocks!"

Bruce

EXCELLENT MALBEC...... little pricey BUT WELL WORTH IT

"My daughter and I were at a Mediterranean restaurant and ordered this wine on recommendation from the waitress. The menu price was $55. So I figured it was a $25 bottle of wine. While dining I looked up the wine on the internet and to my surprise the going price on line was $49.99. I'm glad the restaurant screwed themselves since normally they double the cost. We both loved it and that is why I went and ordered it from Empire... Ordering from Empire is quick and easy and they had the best price on line. Thank you Empire!"

Richard

Rich luscious

Michael

Not at this price-point, $20 is probably the right price.

"Tasted this wine with the Norton Reserva (mallbec, 2011, $13), and we preferred the Norton. At the $40 price, it won't be a repeat purchase."
