Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Opaque black-ruby red in the glass, with heady aromas of jammy black fruits, baking spices, and eucalyptus. Mouth coating fruit forward flavours, round tannins and balanced acidity, with a persistent black fruit finish.
Your ultimate steak wine!
March 2018.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A big wine with an interesting story to go with it. The Malbec grapes were harvested in Mendoza, Argentina and shipped to the Caymus Winery in Napa, California where they were vinified by winemaker Chuck Wagner. The Voyage "5" refers to the 5th time this has been done since 2010 - so in 2015! This is an opaque, dark purple brooding wine that has lots to offer on the nose and palate. Full bodied with blackberry fruit, smoke and oak aromas and flavours. Take your own trip with bbq'd steak or ribs! Tasted March 12, 2018.
As a "Red Wine of the World" this Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains, shipped chilled to Napa Valley and produced with the same techniques as our Caymus Cabernet (may be the first winery to take this approach). Falling outside standard labeling rules, it does not include a vintage date but is known by the voyage from which it traveled (Voyage 5 is the 2014 vintage). Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine is powerful and supple, with flavours of French oak and soft tannins.
“Red Schooner is one of the most fun projects we’ve ever worked on. The harvest in Argentina is during our springtime, so we might be the only winery in the northern hemisphere to be fermenting grapes at that time.”
- Charlie Wagner
