 Caldwell Vineyard Update

Not merely a collection of interesting red wines . . .

The Caldwell Varietal Collection is the finest and purest expression of the most legendary Bordeaux cultivars found in the world.

35 years in the making, our 65-acre vineyard is, as far as we know, the most genetically diverse wine estate in the U.S. with a whopping 28 different clones. Many of the vines are the legacy of North America’s greatest smuggling story and the rebel vintner, JFC, who risked it all in the name of making great wine.

All the right things in all the right places, Caldwell Syrah is a big bootied, voluptuous wine boasting layers of fruit and balanced sophistication. Juicy and meaty with plenty of tell-tale spice, wrap up into a super long and totally decadent finish.
