    April 4, 2020 - Popped and poured, then enjoyed over the following 3 hours. Impeccable condition, direct from the cellar at Cayuse a couple years ago via their cellar sale. Still very fresh and vibrant at 13 years from vintage. Grilled beef, brine, umami, blackberry compote, touches of bacon fat and barnyard funk. Absolutely delicious, and with many years of enjoyment left. Drink now - 2027.

    January 22, 2020 - Deep ruby red. 14.2%. Powerful notes of black olives, barbecued meat, violets, red cherries, blood orange, violets and a faint whiff of gun flint are apparent from the get go, and become progressively stronger with air. Medium-bodied in the mouth, with dark cherries, loads of minerals and a briny, savory quality. Notably long in the finish, this has shed much of the funkiness typical of young Cayuse wines. An outstanding Syrah that is in a perfect spot right now. 95.

    January 20, 2020 - Layers of dark fruit, minerals, and hint of oak on the nose and palate with silky texture and a long finish. More vibrant than the last bottle!

    November 27, 2019 - Aging gracefully, but lacking the acidity and structure to improve. Drink up.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    12/28/2009 (link) ***** points

    (Cayuse Vineyards En Chamberlain Vineyard Walla Walla Valley) A funky, aromatic nose with mushroom, earth, mineral, streaky red fruit, floral notes, and healthy dose of black pepper. Thick and intense on a palate that has a perfect polish to it and is almost impenetrable. The palate shows lots of sliced black olives and pepper. The finish is seemingly endless. 14.6% alcohol.
