    Product Description

    Separated from Napa by just an invisible county line, Suisun Valley (which became an AVA in 1982) is still largely undiscovered. With its warm days and cool nights, this pastoral region reminds us of Napa Valley in the 1960s. Known for delicious stone fruits and walnuts, it is also gaining recognition for exceptional wine. Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah, the widely grown grape in the region - they added Grand to the name for its grand style. With harmonious tannins, this wine is opulent, luxuriously soft, and enjoyable.

    Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif is a luscious and complex wine that offers an exquisite expression of the Suisun Valley AVA. This wine showcases a deep, dark purple color that immediately catches the eye while the aromas of ripe blackberries, black cherries, and cassis waft from the glass, hinting at the richness of the wine to come. On the palate, the wine bursts with dark fruit flavors and warm baking spices, with subtle hints of vanilla and toasted oak adding a touch of complexity. The tannins are smooth and well-integrated, balancing the rich fruit flavors and adding structure to the wine's elegant finish.
