Inky black, with a thick, velvety mouthful of blackberry, plum compote, clove, tobacco and cream soda flavors are generous, polished and plump. Very intense on the chai tea-sandalwood-infused finish. Drink now through 2027.

The 2014 Three Bridges Durif (100% Petite Sirah) is a beauty. Ripe, opulent, yet still fresh, with nicely integrated acidity and notes of blackberries, plums, scorched earth, and graphite, this full-bodied effort has loads of charm. There’s enough fine tannin to keep it drinking nicely for 7-8 years or more. 2018-2026.

The Durif (aka Petite Sirah) is a dense, inky-hued wine, oozing with ripe blackberry, blueberry, dried herbs, wet earth, toasty oak and a savory smoky steak in the background. The palate is rich in powerful, dusty tannins, plush fruit and slightly chunky wood...Drink 2020-2030.
Fruit sourced from the Riverina. Intense deep crimson with vibrant purple hue.. An aromatic blood plum and dark chocolate nose with an array of ripe blackberries, supported by toasty American oak. A full bodied palate with big rich characters, encompassing a tannic mouthfeel of vanilla and coconut combined with sweet fruit and warm alcohol.
Durif is a red wine originally sourced from France. The berries produced are small and concentrated and performs best in war, sunny areas and that is why Calabria Wines has so much success with it.. The wine produced is full flavored with intense color and high tannins. Will age well.
Ideal accompaniment to rich meat dishes, such as Osso Buscco, roast beef, or duck with garlic and herbs, Enjoy also with vintage cheddar cheese.
