- Alcohol content: 15.4%
- AVA: California
- Aromas: Baked raspberry, caramel, leather, smoked peat, asphalt, and cayenne pepper.
- Flavors/experience: Medium-high acidity presents fresh blueberry, blackberry, black currant, and vanilla. Silky tannin frames a long finish with notes of white pepper and menthol.
- Specifications: Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah; This wine is produced using 100% of the varietal. True to Caymus form, this is a big, lush, late-picked wine that is a mouthful of spicy, tannic berry pie, yet with a controlled and intentional balance reminiscent of a Russian ballet.
