Caymus Suisun Grand Durif, Suisun Valley, California, 2017
Grand Durif is our special wine produced from a little known valley, which has produced wine since 1862. WIth climatic conditions equal to neighboring Napa Valley, the Suisun (Su-Soon) Valley is renowned for its lush, flavorful fruits and vegetables. Yet the Suisun soils and climate can also produced 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 aging in French oak. Alc. 15.4% by vol. 30.8 Produced & bottled by Caymus Vineyards, Fairfield, California.
