  • Really disappointing. Nice nose but dull cherry, sweet and tepid finish. If you have some then drink immediately because it's past it's prime

  • This is a lovely lovely wine. Cork broke on opening, but was able to strain it out. This has a wonderful nose of capsicum/Tabasco, leather, mint and other herbs. It reminds me of a good relatively young Bordeaux. Nice smooth fruit on the palate, with some nice acidity that gives it a good lift. Hints of violets, mint/eucalyptus, and even marzipan. The finish is fine and long. I worried that some of the Cayuse Bdx blends did not taste much different than the syrahs. This is exactly the opposite. Very much a product of its grapes, and its terroir. As someone recently said, people come to Cayuse for the syrahs but stay for the Bordeaux blends. Up until this point I did not agree – and maybe still don’t – but I see the point now!

  • All chocolate and oak on nose, medium to medium deep ruby, big chocolate, oak, smooth/toasty nose, a hint of blueberry and bell pepper - smooth and sleek w just enough acidity to sustain it. Definitely tasty, but to me, it falls just short of being a dessert wine, so not my cup of tea. Would be great after dinner, before dessert.

  • Wow, best bottle of wine that I didn't intend to purchase! No noticeable tanins. Very good fruit with secondary spices. So good.

  • Delicious wine. Definitely Cayuse, but not overly funky. Lot's of spice box and anise in the nose with some dark cherry. Lush and soft in the mouth with great balance and a long finish.
