Tuesday, July 31, 2012 - In comparison to a 2004 bottling I had a few months ago, I thought the 07' left a bit to be desired. Turns out my sweet spot for Cayuse lay around the 7-8 year mark, and my worry that five years was a bit too soon, turned out to be true. All the wild components I love about Cayuse were there (green olives, cedar, bacon), but none of them seemed to blend as beautifully as they would have with a few more years under its belt. The fruit was all black and blue, and the acidity was there in equal parts to its plush profile. Enjoyable with beef stroganoff, but would wait at least two more years if I had to do it all over again.
