  • My first experience with Cayuse' Bordeaux blend, and it did not disappoint. Not quite as intense as the syrahs, but no worse for it. Incredible nose full of blackberry liqueur, herbs, and spice. Rich, full mouth of dark berries, cassis, green pepper, soft, silky tannins, and a classicly long Cayuse finish with a hint of trademark minerality on the very back end. Continued to change for hours in the glass.

  • Much better than last bottle, this was really quite yummy, albeit in the rich chocolatey style - medium black cherry red w signs of age - big rich N World nose of chocolate, coconut, spice - palate better, as it veers at least part way to vinosity, with chocolatey red fruits, v good length, and just a wonderfully appealing overall profile - one's style or not, undeniably delicious.

  • The 04 Camaspelo quality landed somewhere between the 05 & 06 for me .. taking a bit of the candied fruit from the former and marrying it to some of the elegance of the latter. Otherwise it portrayed the requisite Cayuse nose and tongue trademarks for which the label's become so famous. It competed equally with an earlier 08 Grand Reve offering, but was surpassed by the 11 QC Cab served later at dinner.

  • Dinner at HT restaurant at OrchardH. Ripen fruits, sweet corn, rich, round and sensational nose, followed by full bodied, matured and pleasant mouth fill. Very drinkable and to be enjoyed now.
