Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif ReviewCaymus-Suisun Grand Durif Syrah
Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif is ideally suited to growing certain varieties of grapes. The Wagner family began an in-depth search of “the Suisun” in early 2014 and identified a few top-quality Durif vineyards in the hidden corners of this small picturesque place (Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah). As they set their sights on producing a Caymus-style wine from one of the world’s heavyweight varieties, they made a promise to themselves that “a new wine bearing the Caymus name would have to be great – or, it would not be bottled.”
Buy Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif 2016
A velvety purple with ruby-red highlights, the 2016 vintage of Grand Durif features an abundant nose of dark plums and baked blueberries, woven with scents of lavender, white rose petals, sweet smoke and brown spice. Entry on the palate is smooth, yielding to a pop of rich, luxurious tannins that then sneak back, revealing lush fruit flavors of dark berry cobbler. What gives this wine its singular character are the tannins – strong yet supple, pronounced while being strikingly soft. The finish is long, with warm, evocative notes of unsweetened cocoa. Still quite young, this vintage can be enjoyed now and also has tremendous aging potential.
