The 2019 Sea Sun by Charlie Wagner California Pinot Noir is straightforward and smooth. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with pleasing layers on the palate. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of candied cherries with mint leaves-accented, grilled lamb chops. (Tasted: January 29, 2021, San Francisco, CA)-WW

A deep, alluring red, this wine is strikingly soft on both the nose and palate. A rich fruit character wafts from the glass, featuring scents of baked cherries and pie crust. Additional layers come from notes of brown spice and the warm vanilla that signals perfectly integrated, lightly pressed wood. Entry on the palate is bright and fruit-driven, with lush cherry flavors that mimic the nose. Texture is plush and silky smooth, leading into a finish that evokes the taste and feel of milk chocolate.-Winemaker Notes

Led by Owner and Winemaker Charlie Wagner, Sea Sun Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are created from the singular beauty and character of the California coast. The regions where Sea Sun is sourced have included Monterey, Santa Barbara and Solano Counties. Solano is home to the hidden gem of Suisun Valley -- only a 30-minute drive southeast of Napa, Suisun shares a similar maritime climate and is capable of producing outstanding grapes.

All of the coastal regions where we source grapes for Sea Sun provide ideal growing conditions for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with cooling ocean breezes and an extended growing season that leads to heightened complexity in the wine. These regions also feature subtle differences as a result, Sea Sun wines are layered with aromas and flavors, holding broad appeal for a wide range of palates.-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.
