Wagner Red Schooner Voyage 5This Malbec is made from grapes grown in the Andes Mountains, shipped chilled to Napa Valley and produced with the same techniques as our Caymus Cabernet.

Offering scents of ripe plums and cherries, this wine is powerful and supple, with flavors of French oak and soft tannins

Grgich Hills Yountville Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Caymus Suisun Grand Durif 2015Our 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 dch 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 a 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.
