Community Tasting Note

  • MAXIMUM SATISFACTION Likes this wine: 94 points

    March 3, 2013 - Decanted for 6 hours plus. Extremely strange and unique even for Cayuse standards. Thick tannish purple coloring. One of the biggest noses I have ever encountered. A colossal fragrance of smoked meat, salami, dirty mushrooms, black fruit, truffle, and most of all Washington FUNK. Midsection is disturbingly muted. The only way to describe it is flat. The blue/black fruit in the finish is long and smooth but also lacks intensity. Best to hold a few years as it appears to be in a dormant stage.
