Welcome, wine snobs, to a Cabernett Report unpacking of a wine that, much like Bernie Lomax from the hit movie "Weekend at Bernie's," seems to have an uncanny ability to stay popular despite its questionable characteristics. We present to you the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that, at first glance, might just remind you of the lovable yet lifeless Bernie Lomax himself. N̶o̶w̶ ̶a̶v̶a̶i̶l̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶T̶a̶r̶g̶e̶t̶.̶ But don't let that stop you from supporting local wine shops like ours at Casewinelife.com.
It's Always There but Never Really Active
Just like Bernie Lomax, who somehow manages to stay "alive" throughout an entire weekend of partying, the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon seems to always be present at gatherings, yet it doesn't quite bring the same level of excitement as other wines. It's like the friend who never dances at the party, just stands in the corner and watches.
It's Expensive but Doesn't Always Deliver
Much like Bernie, who lived in a lavish beachfront mansion, the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon comes with a premium price tag. However, when you finally uncork it, you might wonder if you're getting your money's worth. Sure, it's a decent wine, but is it really worth the hype and the price.
It Has a Certain Stiffness
Bernie Lomax is known for his less-than-flexible posture throughout the entire movie, and the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon seems to share this rigidity. While other wines might flow gracefully, this one often feels a bit stiff and formal, like it's attending a black-tie event when all you wanted was a casual gathering. This is in spite of the handful of sugar cubes that find their way into every bottle.
It Might Just Be Faking It
Let's face it; Bernie Lomax wasn't exactly "alive" for most of the movie, and the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon might not be as authentic as it claims either. Is it possible that it's riding on the reputation of the Caymus Vineyards rather than its own merits? It's like when Bernie's party guests pretend he's still alive to keep the party going.
It Tends to Attract a Certain Crowd
Just as Bernie Lomax attracted a host of partygoers looking for a good time (even if it meant dancing with a dead guy), the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon seems to attract a specific type of wine drinker. You know the type—the one who insists on ordering it because it's a "safe" choice, even if there are more exciting options on the menu.
In conclusion, the Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon might just be the Bernie Lomax of wines—always present, a bit stiff, possibly overrated, and loved by a particular crowd. But hey, just like in "Weekend at Bernie's," if it's what you enjoy, who are we to judge? Cheers to you and your wine choices, no matter how "Bernie-esque" they may be!
It’s funny that starting with the 2020 vintage (currently available)
The label shows that the regular Napa Valley cab isn’t even being produced by Caymus anymore, just bottled by them. I’d love to know who they bought the vintage from. The Napa “Select” is still produced by them, though.
The story begins in 2013 when Brazilian billionaire André Esteves and a group of investors took the reins of Argiano, a historic winery in Montalcino, from Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano and winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers. This change in ownership marked a strategic shift back to the roots of Brunello winemaking, fueled by a commitment to tradition and excellence.

When it comes to wine, the term "vintage" often gets tossed around, and it can...
Ownership details of the Trump Winery have undergone some changes over the years. According to legal notices on the winery's website, it suggests that the business is now Eric Trump's personal project, operating under the name "Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC."
Meghan Markle's passion for fine wine is no secret, and one of her all-time favorites was Antinori's Tignanello. Tignanello is a highly regarded Italian red wine, known for its rich and complex flavors, and it served as a precursor to the Super Tuscan wines. Meghan's love for this wine went beyond the palate; it became a symbol of her appreciation for luxury, such as owning a personal helicopter like Piero Antinori, the patriarch of Marchesi Antinori and the maker of Tignanello.
But what made the Cabrera gift stand out was how it diverged from the norm of players often being gifted Rolex watches from teams and teammates. But Cabrera plays for the Tigers so it is likely that his team will be gifting the legend something more befitting of his stature in baseball history. As for the bottle of Caymus he likely left in the opposing team's dugout after the game, here's hoping it finds its way back to the individual in the Athletics' front office who hatched this brilliance.
Planning an event can be a delightful experience, especially if you can afford an event coordinator but when you're the one in charge it can be cumbersome. There a slew of details to consider like the food, venue and seating charts.
