||GV $29 | Caymus “The Walking Fool” Red Blend
The Wagners’ latest project exploring the little known Suisun Valley southeast of their home base in Napa Valley bears exceptional fruit. The latest wine, the Walking Fool, which is named for great grandfather Charles Glos who would walk to work from his homestead at the base of Howell Mountain earning him the aforementioned nickname.
“This new red wine blend is produced from Suisun Valley, a remarkable AVA that has become the Wagner family’s second home. Like its close neighbor Napa Valley, Suisun Valley has ideal soils and climate for a variety of grapes. The Walking Fool is named after a long-ago relative who was often seen traveling by foot – thus earning this affectionate moniker. Featuring Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, this wine is smooth and lively, with juicy raspberry, notes of espresso and softly fine tannins.”
