2016 Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif....$51.99
Next lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $59.99
Grand Durif is our special wine produced from a little know valley, which has produced wine since 1862. With climatic conditions equal to neighboring Napa Valley, the Suison Valley is renowned for its lush, flavorful fruits and vegetables. Yet the Suisun soils and climate can also produce dark, exquisite and age-worthy wines that are rich and magnificent. Our luxurious Durif is made following rigorous and uncompromising standards in both the vineyard and winery. The winemaking process begins by thinning the crop by hand to ensure low yields of uniformly ripe clusters followed by long, cool fermentations and barrel ageing in oak.

Dark and plush, this combines structure with polish, offering notes of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, grilled herb and toasty spice that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 3,718 cases made.
