    April 15, 2017 - I took this to a friends for a lamb and Syrah dinner on 4/15/17. It had a deep, rich and fragrant bouquet of smoke, peat, blackberry, blueberry, plum, black olives, minerals, licorice, herb and spice aromas. The palate was dense, powerful and elegant with flavors of blackberry, blueberry, plum, black olive, dirt, licorice, herb and spice…wonderful stuff.

    March 28, 2017 - Has that funky Cayuse nose and then.....strike out! Ugh. High alcohol, lacking any balance, and really off putting. Hoping this is just an off bottle, otherwise time to dump the rest.

    August 12, 2016 - Quite amazingly expressive from the get go. Wafting aromatics of dark fruits, spice, beef blood, etc. Not nearly as much funky stuff typical in younger Cayuse. Nice on the palate, good finish. Super good stuff here, still young.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    11/30/2012 (link) ***** points

    (Cayuse Vineyards En Chamberlain Vineyard Syrah Walla Walla Valley) Dark in color. Arresting aromas of bloody beef, mushroom, and savory notes. Coats the palate from end to end with soft, savory flavors with incredible intensity and length. Among the best from the 2009 vintage. 100% Syrah. 314 cases produced.
