2014 Carter Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Weitz Vineyard Napa Valley

Decanted for 3 hours. This is a big, bold, bad ass wine that is very enjoyable right now. Integrated now, but will still pull together more in a couple years. Very deep garnet colored. Deep dark plumb, over ripe strawberries and cherry pie. Graphite and chocolate as well. The texture and mouthfeel are what stands out most. Luxuriously silky.

2009 Cayuse Syrah Cailloux Vineyard Walla Walla Valley

At dinner after a tasting of ten 2003-2011 Bob Foley wines, from Robert Foley, Padis, Switchback, including pinots, syrah, cabs, merlots. Most of these wines were very dark and huge, with very big tannins. This Cayuse was equally concentrated and dark, totally opaque. However, the nose was completely different, with coffee-mocha, leather, meat, black fruits, quite complex. Perfectly balanced fruit, full-bodied but acid and tannin well in the background...viscous and tastes which developed and changed on the palate over 30 seconds, some smokiness and anise. The finish is very long, also very complex. Always outstanding...a wonderful Oregon syrah!
