Tasting - Palm Court 2/2 on 5/21/17 3:30 PM

The hostess tried to seat us at the worst table in the direct sun on a 90 degree day. It took three tries to move inside to the AC. The wines offered were not ready to drink - our server told us they needed 6 years of aging! And for this they charge $50 each. Bitterly disappointing. Looks like Caymus is all about the $$ and don't care about the customer.

Beautiful setting and atmosphere. We had a reservation for bar tasting and a table opened up outside which we were sat instead going into the bar area. It was lovely and a much more personal experience than being at the bar tasting with others. Lindsey did our wine tasting and she was awesome! Very knowledgable. We also got to keep our glasses which not many wineries do anymore. Great time!

Immediately arriving, we were greeted with an incredible smell of jasmine flowers-which just put you in a great mood. So many beautiful touches and creative plantings. I can't wait to go back!! We left with only 2 bottles since it was our first winery that day and we had to fly home, but could've easily left with all 6 that we tasted.

Horrible. Very cold greeting. Felt like a herd do cattle. I like Camus wine and was excited to come. It was the biggest disappointment of our 8-day trip. There are so many great wines to drink in Napa and Caymus will no longer be runs by me. You collected my 50 bucks and that's all you cared about. I spent thousands of dollars at every winery we visited. I spent 0 at Caymus and will NEVER spend

It was by far one of our favorite vineyards not only for the wine, but the ambiance as a whole.

This winery had an amazing ambiance. The staff was friendly and the Arbor wine tasting had a beautiful setting surrounded by flowers. The ONLY reason I didn't rate this a 5 was because no cheese was paired with the wine. Every other winery we visited on our trip enhanced the tasting with amazing pairings of cheese, so it stood out as to what it was lacking.

I was disappointed with the experience and told a friend visiting with a group in June that it wasn't worth the price. For a $50 pour expect more than a chair, a small pour, and a short visit. I liked the Cab and ended up buying a bottle but not happy with the experience. I wanted more.
