Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif features a deep, majestic purple, with a nose of blueberries, wet earth and saddle leather. The initial impression on the palate is broad, smooth and weight, then springs into gear with rich and harmonious tannins. The key notes of this wine are the lush textural tannins that push the limits on arrogance yet also display friendly supple qualities. It's gruly difficult to explain its singular style - firm structure yet super-abundant fine textural softness. Oak plays a significant rol in providing a vanilla character. This wine can be enjoyed now, thou it is still quite a baby.
