Fodor's Review

For a winery whose claims to fame include producing Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, the only two-time Wine Spectator Wine of the Year honoree, Caymus remains a remarkably accessible spot to taste current and past vintages of the celebrated wine. Chuck Wagner started making wine on this property in 1972 and still oversees Caymus production. His children craft most of the other wines in the Wagner Family of Wines portfolio, including the oaked and unoaked Mer Soleil Chardonnays and the Belle Glos Pinot Noirs. You can sample Caymus and other wines at the often crowded tasting bar for $25—in good weather, wines are also poured outside—but to taste library wines and learn more about the winery's history, consider booking a private tasting.
