Caymus Wine, Ok Now I Get It


Recommended Posts

I remember multiple conversations about Caymus wine, we’ve been on many cruises and I haven’t been able to part with my $$ but now I get it.  I celebrated getting my second vaccine with a bottle, finally tried it last night, it’s fantastic.  Since we haven’t been spending our money on dining out I thought I would splurge and I’m glad I did.  I know that an expensive bottle of wine doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better but I really enjoyed it.  I toasted to new beginnings (my husband quit drinking so I had the entire bottle to myself,  yay me), health and happiness and hopefully to cruising next year.

You should give 1858 Paso Robles and 1858 Napa a try. Don’t be fooled by the price, it’s a wine made and bottled by Wagner, same maker of Caymus. Total Wine carries these two.

Really like the 1858 Napa, the Paso, no so much.  For an “everyday” wine we like Conundrum red blend.  Also made by the same group.

AMEN on the Conundrum!! The White blend is good too, DW likes White.

The last few times at Izumi, we had the Conundrum white - very good

We've tried both and IMHO they don't compare; especially the 1858 Napa with an almost $70 price point. If we're going to spend that much we can get the real deal Caymus for a few $$ more. Have also tried Caymus Special Select and would rather drink regular Caymus. 

 

If you like Pinot Noir.... Belle Glos, by the Wagner family, is superb.

We like the Belle Glos too. The Paso is preferred over the Napa and has a good price. There is no doubt, Caymus is a really good wine. I thought the 2016 year was excellent.

The 2 for 1 coupon on RCI was my introduction to red wine....and Caymus several years ago. I still remember sitting in Vintages on Radiance and sipping that wonderful red wine for almost an hour. I was hooked and the rest is history.

With no cruising for a year, my Belle Glos stash is almost depleted. 😪

We always use our 2 for 1 coupons on Caymus -- nectar of the gods 🍷

One of my favorite expressions. My late father, an NYPD detective, used it all the time! 

 

Cheers.

There are so many great Napa Cabernet, we normally will drink at least one bottle a week .silver oak Napa is great but a little pricy.

 

I visited Silver Oaks vineyard last (and only) time I was in Napa.  Even the tastings are pricey but it's is great wine.

Would love to visit Napa definitely on our to do list. What I find interesting is the difference of price between Silver Oaks Cabernet Napa and their Alexander Valley, in a restaurant the Napa is a couple of hundred more. Luckily we also like almost all Alexander valley.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced “Tuesday night” wine, try another Chuck Wagner product- Bonanza Cabernet. Total sells it for around $20.

Thanks for the suggestions, I want to try the Conundrum white 

 

I think it shows up on the 340 point gift list.

White Conundrum sell for about 13 and red for about 20 in my local grocery store . They are ok.

What we didn't see on our last few cruises is Caymus by the glass so no 2 for 1 available.
