2002 Cayuse Syrah En Cerise Vineyard

Community Tasting Note


Sunday, March 25, 2012 - Medium red with thinning rim. Sexy combination of smoke and musky red fruit that reminds me of Cote Rotie. Ripe but not sweet, beautiful medium weight and feel, excellent, perfectly integrated acidity. All of the above flavors plus spice, judicious oak and a hint of mint. Some tannin remains, but this is essentially at its peak, and quite a high peak it is. Uniquely elegant, exciting domestic Syrah.
