Winemaker’s Notes

Suisun (su-soon) Valley, which lies to the Southeast of Caymus, is only a 40-minute drive and reminds the Wagner family 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 – they added “Grand” to the name of the Suisun-grown Durif because it has a grand style. With lush textural tannins, this wine is rich, supple and totally enjoyable.

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. 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.
