  • Drinking very well now. Opened very barnyard-y and gamey. That blew off and cherry, black cherry and cola emerged; smooth mouth feel. After an hour cherry fruit came to the fore, and it developed a bit more brightness. A wonderful wine.

  • Almost perfect. The alcohol showed prominently upon opening, so let it breath for an hour. Every sip got better and better. Wet forest floor, wet stone and some olive, maybe mushrooms on the nose, very rich mouthfeel, earthy complex with multiple layers on the palate with medium long elegant finish. Definite old world vibe. Bravo!

  • Incredible. Probably the best GOK I have ever had. Had with Srini at Bis on Main. Bummer this was my last!!

  • Decanted for 1 hour, then back in bottle to serve an hour later. Nice blend of minerals & fruits (raspberry & cherry) plus a touch of earth and the distinctive Cayuse terroir funk (mild & nice this time).

  • Color: light, transparent ruby -> diffuse, light ruby rim; looks like Burgundy. Once again, smells like the quintessential amalgamation of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and red Burgundy; beetroot, raspberries, strawberries, mushrooms, earth and an alluring CDP-like spiciness. Lovely, not-over-the-top Cayuse garrigue on PnP that really blossomed to near perfection at about 60-90 minutes. Smooth, juicy palate showing beautiful acidity a nice hefty midpalate and long finish. This vintage of GOK skews distinctly in the direction of Grenache (as it should) showing spiciness, earth, gaminess and deep red fruit. Delicious now (could use about a 60 minute decant), for those with bottles in their cellars I think this has time in hand.
