When it comes to California cabernet sauvignon, a bottle from Caymus Vineyards tends to be a real crowd pleaser, and a favorite of critics too. Its "Special Selection" cabernet sauvignon has twice won Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" - for its 1990 and 1984 vintages - and renown for its ripe yet balanced flavor profile. Lounge ON20 (20th and K streets, Sacramento) will be partnering with Caymus on Sept. 28 for a feast of modern cooking and finely crafted wines. Chef Pajo Bruich's four course menu will include a salad of heirloom beets paired with 2011 Caymus Unoaked Mer Soleil Chardonnay, and a New York strip loin steak with "deconstructed steak sauce" to match the vaunted 2009 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon.
