The Black Stump Durif Shiraz 2019

Cassis, cherry and smoke nose. Doesn't require much airing/decenting. Earth, leather and oak opens into a mellow, semi-dry finish. Lasting elderberry, strawberry and mushroom. Quaffable, Where's my straw? — 3 months ago

Westend Estate Wines

Three Bridges Calabria Durif 2013

This Duriff (Petite Syrah) is actually produced in the Barossa Valley of Australia. Calabria is the name of family who founded the winery. A powerful and dense wine that is somewhat soft and subtle at the same time. Big aromas and flavors of blackberry, bakers chocolate and vanilla oak. Beautiful structure and depth. Firm grained tannins with a long warming finish. Solid. — 5 months ago


Buckboard Single Vineyard Durif 2010

Big, bold and strong. The 2010 consumed in 2021 is certainly ripe and ready to go. Plum, figs and plenty of spice, it’s pretty hard to fault this if you like a big reds from the Barossa — 23 days ago

Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Ok this is one of those thick bottles that got ripped in my wine cellar so it is the petite Sirah (read durif )(a natural cross of Peloursin X Syrah - I believe Francois Durif is the one that discovered and observed it - any way big tannins subtle spice black fruits earth - for me a nicely made wine just not super interesting — 2 months ago

Kiona Vineyards

Red Mountain AVA Petite Sirah Syrah

A deep inhalation of retrospective thought…. And raspberry cooli

A very dense wine, this Durif/Syrah split - heavy and beautiful. Blueberry seed, raspberries, cherry skins. Fresh eucalyptus, powdery tannins, high and impressive acids.
Wash state for the win again.
