CAYMUS-SUISUN GRAND DURIF PETITE SIRAH 2018

Suisun (su-soon) Valley, which lies to the Southeast of Caymus, is only a 40-minute drive and reminds us of Napa Valley 40 years ago. With its warm days and cool nights, the region is known for delicious stone fruits and walnuts - increasingly, it is also gaining recognition for its wine. Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah, the widely grown grape in the region - we added "Grand" to the name of our Suisun-grown Durif because it has a grand style. With lush textural tannins, this wine is rich, supple and totally enjoyable.

Winemaker Notes:
A regal maroon rimmed with purple, the 2018 vintage features rich, enveloping scents of French plums and German chocolate cake. A hint of pomace, vanilla, and floral potpourri adds freshness to the nose, while the wood on this wine cradles but never defines the fruit. On the palate, dark berry flavors mingle with tannins, each expanding again and again to march the other. An initial softness builds, evolving on the finish to the texture of blackberry preserves or the filling of a fig bar, creamy and luxurious.

Critical Acclaim:

91 points - Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
"Why doesn't the world love Durif? Perhaps it is because the grape variety is barely known (except "geeks" in the wine biz). The 2018 Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif is powerful and lasting on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine is not shy as it surrounds the palate with ripe, grapey fruits and wood. Enjoy it with wood-smoked short ribs, and bring a good appetite to the table."
