“Dark and plush, this combines structure with polish, offering notes of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, grilled herb and toasty spice that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.”

Winemaker Tasting Notes
“Our 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 weighty, 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 truly difficult to explain its singular style - firm structure yet super-abundant fine textural softness. Oak plays a significant role in providing vanilla character. This wine can be enjoyed now, though it is still quite a baby. Although I find myself drinking it now, I believe it has tremendous aging potential as well.” - Chuck Wagner, Owner and Winemaker
