Suisun (su-soon) Valley, which lies to the Southeast of Caymus, is only a 40-minute drive and is similar to 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 – Chuck added “Grand” to the name of Suisun-grown Durif because he doesn’t do “petit”. With lush textural tannins, this wine is rich, supple and totally enjoyable.
Try with robust dishes made with beef, lamb, or game (deer, venison)
