About the wine

When the Wagner clan first set foot in Rutherford, the central Napa Valley landscape was not what it is today--orchards outnumbered visitors, and tourists were rare. The same chance at discovery and innovation exists just a stone’s throw from Rutherford in the Suisun Valley! Family patriarch and iconic winemaker Chuck Wagner was just looking for a bottling facility, but fell in love...again. After exploring the vineyards and meeting local ranchers, he discovered, Durif (AKA Petite Sirah) as a standout grape. and lost no time bringing a new bestseller to the Caymus family.

Wine Spectator called it right with the first release: “Dark and plush, this combines structure with polish.” The second release of the Grand Durif follows suit with richness and spice --leaving a firm impression of Petite Sirah’s signature flavors. French oak aging adds notes of mocha, baking spice, and clove that are irresistible.

"Gorgeous purple color meets an enticing nose of black, blue and red fruit. This boisterous wine delivers the mid-palate and packs a long-lasting savory and fruity finish with well-groomed tannins.  For the immense wine lover, this is your playground.  Moreover, this will appeal to many palates looking for something new and exciting and delivers top-notch quality. Pair with grilled duck breast and braised short ribs."

Winemaker Tasting Notes

"Our Grand Durif features 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. Tis wine can be enjoyed now, though it is still quite a baby. Although I find myself drinking it now, I believe it had tremendous aging potential as well." - Chuck Wagner

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
