Happy #winewednesday everyone! Since it’s #wawinemonth we decided to crack open this 2011 Cayuse Syrah from the Cailloux Vineyard.
2011 Cayuse Syrah Cailloux Vineyard
The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Oregon, United States of America
Beautiful Syrah which in 2011 was co-fermented with 5% Viognier from the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater in Oregon. Medium ruby red with some garnet hues. Layered nose with purple flowers, light baking spices, crushed rocks, raspberries and a bit savory. Medium plus tannins (7/10) and medium plus body. Love the funk and iron on the palate followed up by some red berries, smoked earth and white pepper. Long finish. Drink till 2025.
