  • 2011 Horsepower Vineyards Syrah The Tribe Vineyard

    Its honestly a bit early to rate this one - but giving it a 90 based on current enjoyment. As others have stated, this is from a cool WA vintage, which gives it a cool climate feel (reminded me a bit of a sonoma coast syrah). It has cayuse signiture to it - but at this point dominated by traditional cool climate syrah character, not that there's anything wrong with that. After reading the half dozen or so notes on this, a kinda knew what to expect with this before opening but wanted to pop before committing to the 2012s. I drank over 2 nights - by far my favorite was the initial glass, the wine mellowed out from there and by day 2 wasn't all that appealing. Its hard to tell exactly where this wine will go over the next few years, but I have hope that the wine will transition into something nice.

  • 2010 No Girls Syrah

    Pop and pour. Just a baby. This needs more time in bottle. Whereas the no girls 2009s were showy, this is more backward. Dark fruit, ash, minerally, earth, slight funk. Lots of stuffing. Like a bigger version of the 2008 no girls. Could be doable with a long decant. Otherwise, thinking at least another year in bottle. 91 with lots of upside.

  • 2012 Rudius Mourvèdre Bedrock Vineyard

    Pop and Pour. In a great place right now. Interesting nose that you just want to keep smelling. Big dark fruits with plenty of structure. Paired wonderfully with bbq ribs. This could end up being my red wine of the summer.
