Debut! Not Only Zachys, but America’s #1 Selling California Cabernet from the “Exceptional” and Approachable Napa Vintage. Zachys Wine of the Day is the American Steakhouse Classic, 2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94WA). Plus Restocking 2013 Caymus Cabernet Special Selection from the 98-Point Vintage.
“Napa Valley delivered another exceptional vintage in 2014. The wines are bright, energetic and focused, with tons of character and pedigree. Even better, the 2014s will be easier to drink young than the 2013s that preceded them.” –Antonio Galloni, Vinous
“Few wineries in the world can boast such an enviable record of consistent excellence as that of Caymus.” Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
We’re celebrating the debut of the country’s #1 Napa wine and steakhouse classic with special pricing for the next 48 hours! With the start of a new year, there is no better time to debut America’s favorite, the approachable drinking cabernet sauvignon from one of the symbols of American wine – Caymus AND the 2014 Napa vintage. With another 94 Points from Robert Parker and The Wine Advocate, this is Zachys Wine of the Day! To complement this highly rated release, we are including the mere three cases of Caymus Vineyards Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (95WS) that we were allocated.
What you should know about the 2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is that this is among the highest rated wines in its 40+ years of production. More importantly, it is a worthy and more energetic follow-up to the 2013 and 2012 hits, which to this day remain two of our fastest selling California wines to date. The 2014 vintage in California is, as Robert Parker has put it, part of “the unprecedented and historic succession of great years, such as 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Talk about an embarrassment of riches... there is an exuberance and flashiness to the 2014s, as they have clearly put on weight now that they’re in bottle.” And as Antonio Galloni put it, “the wines are more approachable and less tannic than the 2013s.”
Once again, the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon has delivered its appealing style and the 2014 ranks alongside the 2010, 2012, and 2013 as the highest rated expressions since 1970. Unfortunately, we only receive a small allocation of the Wagner Family flagship each year and we’re debuting it both in 750ml and the unique 1L format that the Wagners bottle each vintage. We are making them available to you today with special pricing for the next 48 hours.
Please note special pricing on these wines is valid for 48 hours or while supplies last. Wines are in stock and ready to be the first of the 2014s you add to your cellar or dinner table.
All my best,
