    September 27, 2019 - PnP. After an evening with this wine I think it is still young for my taste. Some nice bright fruits, but almost like one is sensing them through a thin film of cream. Some nice earth notes along with the fruit, but there is perhaps slightly less acid at the moment to lift the flavors. The last glass, down to the last drop, was starting to develop beautifully -- I just smelled the empty glass for a while. I do think this needs a bunch more time to integrate all of the flavors that at the moment seem a bit muffled. The last drop and smell were in the 90s.

    July 25, 2019 - Much better than I anticipated. Really up there with the better 90%+ CdP wines. Beautiful fruit, textures and not too hot.

    May 18, 2019 - In an interesting place. Has evolved for the better over the past 5 years. Still has lots of room for development but not sure where it's going.

    (Cayuse Vineyards God Only Knows Grenache Walla Walla Valley) Dark in color. A brooding wine, loaded with mineral, ash, iodine, and savory notes. The palate is perfumed, ethereal, with incredible intensity and a distinctive umami quality leading to an exceptionally long finish. Aged in neutral puncheons. 100% Grenache. 14.3% alcohol. 491 cases produced.
