Description

Overview: A new red wine blend from the family that created Caymus The Walking Fool was born from our excitement about Suisun Valley - and honors one of our long ago relatives, a man we think would be pleased by this new wine. We first began exploring 

Suisun (“su-soon") Valley about ten years ago. While separated from Napa only by an invisible county line, this small but exceptional wine region was unknown to us. We were immediately drawn in by its unique character and the extremely high quality of its fruit. 

We quickly found ourselves driving as often as possible over the hill” from Napa to Suisun, as we learned about its pastoral landscape, multi-generational family farmers and ideal growing conditions for a wide range of grape varietals. Over time, we set our sights on producing a red wine blend that would feature Zinfandel farmed in Suisun, along with Petite Sirah and other red varietals from the region. This wine became The Walking Fool.

Tasting Notes: A vivid royal red, this wine features eclectic scents of sweet leather, cigar box, a hint of thyme, potpourri, rustic wood and notes of cherry and blueberry. Entry is lively and slightly untamed, with a dance on the palate of cherry, plum, chocolates filled with liqueur, and freshly baked bread. A softness on the palate expands and builds, along with a grippy roundness from this wine's smooth tannins. The finish reprises elements from the nose and palate, as traces of vibrant fruit mingle with luxurious chocolate and liqueur.

Pairing: Lamb

    Great wine (5 stars) with terrible packaging (1 star)

    Super wine but next time I will buy from vendor that at least gives a nod to being aware of waste. I bought a case and it arrived in the standard box with the usual protective bottle molds/protectors. Each individual bottle was extensively plastic wrapped (like saran wrap but thicker), which serves no protective purpose but does create a lot of unnecessary waste. I regularly get wine from the likes of Vivino, Wine Spies and Naked Wine and this packaging style was a first.

    BEST California Red Blend

    The Caymus Walking Fool is by far the BEST California Red Blend around. And the recent Keg N Bottle sale price was a bonus!

    Good stuff!

    Love this product, it’s a fantastic blend. We’re a Justin Cabernet every day wine normally but this is just a bit better. Although it’s a little more expensive I think this is going to be our everyday wine.
