Enjoy three award-winning Library vintages of our cult wine - Durif!
DOUBLE GOLD - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
DOUBLE GOLD - San Francisco International Wine Competition
Intensely flavored and bold, our 2016 Durif opens with prominent aromas of blackberries and dark chocolate, with hints of spice and clay. The subtle earthiness compliments the dense tannins and Durif ’s trademark acidity. With notes of espresso and a hint of minerality, this wine is best paired with foods with equally big and bold flavors, such as short ribs or grilled tri-tip.
