Red Schooner started with appreciating good Malbec. The Wagner family considered making this wine from vineyards in Napa Valley, but turned instead to the place renowned for producing this varietal. They tackled a new challenge: Could they create a wine at Caymus - the family winery - using fruit from another part of the world? The result was Red Schooner, a "Red Wine of the World" that is about the thrill of voyage and discovery.This Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains of Argentina, famed for high altitude and intense sunlight, and shipped chilled to Caymus. The wine is then produced in the Caymus style - dense, dark, powerful and supple. Charlie Wagner, Red Schooner's Director of Winemaking, notes that he loves this wine's lush softness, as well as the spirit of experimentation that lies behind its creation.
