    September 7, 2014 - Didnt love as much as the last one.
    Maybe too tight or harsh at the end.
    Great Walla Walla funk and blueberry, olives.
    Smooth and rich but not over the top.

    March 28, 2014 - Gave it an hour in the decanter before trying. On the nose there's a lot of funk, with tobacco, blue fruits and minerality. On the palate it's a tour de force of rich savory blue and black fruits with an unctuous/umami characteristic that can be so prominent in top northern Rhone and in the best Walla Walla ("Rocks" area) wines, of which this is one. Smooth, rich, savory and lengthy; it doesn't get much better than this.

    March 18, 2014 - Funkadelic and tight. Black and blue fruit, spice and slight oak, veggies, smoke, olive, and peppered meat. Matched nicely with lamb Ragu. Enjoyable but I'm giving my other bottle a few years of sleep before I open.

    March 15, 2014 - WOTN during a Cayuse dinner that included Armada, Lovers, En Cerise, Frog and Cailloux.

    Funkified Cayuse with crushed dark berries and metallic blood. Great bottle and excited to have the 08 & 09 Still sleeping in the cellar.

Washington Wine Report

    (Cayuse Vineyards En Chamberlain Vineyard Walla Walla Valley) A funky, aromatic nose with mushroom, earth, mineral, streaky red fruit, floral notes, and healthy dose of black pepper. Thick and intense on a palate that has a perfect polish to it and is almost impenetrable. The palate shows lots of sliced black olives and pepper. The finish is seemingly endless. 14.6% alcohol.
