About the wine
Caymus is changing the Argentine Malbec game--by making it in Napa, alongside their world famous Cabernets. By taking the same hands-on approach that’s made Caymus a household name, they’re putting great Malbec in the spotlight. The Wagner clan sought out the best vineyards in Mendoza, and has the freshly-picked grapes chilled and shipped to Napa where the magic really happens. Armed with the best fruit and state of the art winery technology, Red Schooner is vinous perfection wrapped in an artsy label that shows its journey from the Andes to Napa.
This new release continues the Caymus legacy of making powerful wines that drink like “An iron fist in a velvet glove.” Flavors of blackberry, blueberry and plum leap from the glass, and secondary notes of chocolate, vanilla, and leather keep this wine interesting until the last drop. Just released, the army of Caymus fans is already clamoring for Voyage 5 and it’s every man and woman for themselves--get your bottles while you can!

About the winery
Caymus Patriarch Chuck Wagner needed a new challenge. So he began to search for a Malbec vineyard that could support the robust Caymus winemaking style – it turned out that the only place that vineyard could be found was 6,000 miles away in the Andes Mountains of South America. But how to get the grapes? The answer took some clever thinking – using the same ships that move refrigerated fruit around the globe, Wagner brought his prized Malbec to Caymus’s facility in historic Rutherford. Thanks to the South American growing season being the opposite of ours, Chuck was able to make Malbec while his famous Cabernet grew happily outside. This unconventional and daring approach has yielded impressive results.

"An opaque purple color that builds up the nose of robust and unctuous dark fruits. Stewed blackberry, macerated plums, blueberry jam, cedar, roasted herbs and mocha fill the palate. Abundant tannins that are so elegant you could drink now or hold for years to come. The perfect meat lovers wine and will crowd please at most BBQ’s this summer. Drink or hold the next 3-7 years."
Chuck Wagner, Caymus Winery
"A deep, rich purple, this wine offers scents of ripe plums and blueberries, along with chocolate, graham crackers, mesquite smoke, and traces of leather. Entry on the palate is broad, featuring lush dark fruit flavors, pomace, unsweetened baking chocolate, and a hint of Teriyaki. On the finish, flavors of sweet berries play back and forth with an evocative smoky quality creating mouth watering interest all the way through."
