    March 15, 2019 - Surprising lite on its feet despite showing huge extraction on the palate. Blueberry-raspberry and licorice. Vibrant.

    March 10, 2019 - Big wine perfectly balanced but not heavy. No funk after 4 hour decant. Loved it

    March 10, 2019 - Almost can simply cut and paste notes when it comes to Cayuse. One has to start with the obligatory comment on the Cayuse funk, which certainly exists in spades in this bottling. Not off putting at all to me, adds a bunch on interest. Good mouthfeel and density, comes across bigger than it actually is. The bottle went quite quickly. I cannot say it was extremely memorable, more 'just another Cayuse' in that it is very good, individualistic, but not great. Went well with a pork tenderloin.

    October 1, 2018 - Magenta in color. 13.5% ABV. Savory nose of red fruits, olive brine, bacon fat and smoke. Medium to full bodies with perfect acidity. Plush and well structured. Cherries, tapenade, gamey meat, blood and minerals on the palate. Lots going on here. Tremendous length on the finish. A great bottle from an average vintage that perhaps just lacks the concentration I typically expect from Armada. Best over the next 2-4 years.
