CAYMUS-SUISUN GRAND DURIF RED 2017

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.

Tasting notes: A regal garnet red, the 2017 vintage is plush and evocative on the nose - scents of beef ribs cooked over an open fire mingle with potpourri and dark plums. Hits the palate with a luxurious softness, then fills every corner of the mouth. This wine is a striking combination, highly structured yet featuring extravagant flavors of dark fruit. Tannins are grainy, intense, round and extremely fine. The finish trails off slowly, a callback to the nose, with traces of potpourri and unsweetened, powdered cacao. Still quite young, this vintage can be enjoyed now and also has tremendous aging potential.
