Chuck Wagner describes his second Petite Sirah – and newest Caymus sensation – like this:

A velvety purple with ruby-red highlights, the 2016 vintage of Grand Durif features an abundant one of dark plums and baked blueberries, woven with scents of lavender, white rose petals, sweet smoke and brown spice. Entry on the palate is smooth, yielding to a pop of high, luxurious tannins that then sneak back, revealing lush fruit flavors of dark berry cobbler. What gives this wine its singular character are the tannins - strong yet supple, pronounced while being strikingly soft. The finish is long, with warm, evocative notes of unsweetened cocoa. Still quite young, this vintage can be enjoyed now and also has tremendous aging potential.

And the Wine Spectator agrees. In fact, the last Caymus Cabernet they rated (one point) higher than the 2015 was the 1994! And as Wagner says, this 2016 is even more exceptional.
