    September 28, 2019 - Luscious dark berries and chocolate on the palate with some black pepper on the finish.
    A little complexity without many secondary flavors, and balanced. This should improve but good now.

    June 16, 2019 - Seriously??? Of all my Cayuse wines, THIS is the one that has to be corked/affected???

    Color: opaque/dark ruby -> deep ruby rim with the barest hint of garnet.
    Nose was distinctly off: stewed vegetables mixed into a generic red wine showing little to no structure and a short finish . . . .

    Vacu-vinned and held for a day hoping things would develop positively but it was not to be. Purchased from Cayuse and while my other bottles have been stellar, this one definitely affected. Ah well . . . .

    April 21, 2019 - Note was written later. Although packed with flavor more elegant and less extracted than some of my other Cayuse wines. I agree that the funk is there but well integrated and not overdone. I just hope this indicates that with age it will lighten up in my younger bottles of Cayuse wines. Very nice bottle, went well with food. Very well put together.

    April 21, 2019 - More elegant and peppery than your standard Cayuse. Took a minute to open up. Tobacco, meaty, beef blood, Rhône central. Dark dark red berry. Leather. Bacon fat. Love it. Amazing. Cayuse funk is there but in check.

    March 23, 2019 - This is the oldest Cayuse Syrah I've had, and it has aged wonderfully. The smoothness and maturity were impressive, and the classic BF characters were only slightly subdued. Overall, the wine is fantastic and remarkably different than the feisty younger vintages I've had recently.
