2016 Caymus-Suisun “Grand Durif,” Suisun Valley AVA
On Sale $49.99 (lowest price online!)
…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 hear 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 singluar style – firm structure yes super-abundant textual softness. Oak plays a significant role in providing a vanilla character.

2015 Gen5 “Ancestral Red,” Lodi AVA, California
On Sale $8.99
This wine is a crowd-pleasing smash hit! We’d compare this to blends at twice the price. Lush, dark, and bold with big flavors of blackberry pie and black cherries, dark chocolate, and baking spices. It’s silky and full bodied, with rich dark fruit flavors, creamy texture, and velvety finish. This wine is a blend of five grapes this region has become famous for–Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Merlot–as an homage to the fifth generation of this winemaking family (like the name Gen5). This is a great pairing for the grill, lean cuts of beef, and hard, nutty cheeses like our cave aged Gruyere and Comte.
