Winemaker Notes

A vibrant, velvety purple, the 2019 vintages features scents of supple leather and earthy wood. The nose is layered with notes of ripe blackberries, rose petals and a hint of clove. Extremely fine, smooth tannins envelop the palate right away, held in seamless balance by this wine's oak. Flavors of berry cobbler mingle with leather, a wisp of fresh campfire, blooming flowers, and chocolate-covered raisins. Dark chocolate carries over to the finish alongside bright fruit and a luxurious, delicate texture.

Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: 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. (Tasted: January 29, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
