Armada Vineyard Syrah 2010

2022 Wine Tasting!! They were very close in ratings but here is how I think they shook out:

1) Clos Du Val
2) Arietta
3) Vino Cobos
4) Chateau Monbosquet
5) Cayuse Syrah Armada

Super fun afternoon!!

Bionic Frog Walla Walla Valley Syrah

Luv this Syrah! A beautiful dark purple magenta. Big nose for sure filled with aromas of smoked meat, that well-known Cayuse funk, and dark cherry with notes of vanilla, wet tea bag perfume and some lingering pine scents. Taste - a delicious, smooth and juicy wine. A tart cherry and dark plum combo pleases the palate with smoked bacon, cedar and bitter chocolate followed by a peppery crushed slate medium plus finish. What a delight this Easter Day! — 2 months ago

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2013

Raspberry, stems, coffee, hung meat, asian spice, orange peel, tapenade, blood and stones. Feral, wild, moderate frame and earthy with a freshness to it. As always a layered and lengthy wine that evolved gloriously over dinner. The firm tannin profile and amount of perfume gave this a distinctive old school feel. — 19 days ago

Love these.

Very much ‘No Girls’ in that this tells exactly you what it is and how it’s feeling. Feed it simple comforts and it’ll love you forever. Interesting and earnest, if uncomplicated.

Very approachable young while showing the Cayuse funk kiss. This is going to enter my rotation of burger wines.

Sur Echalas Vineyard Syrah 2014

1.5 hour decant (little cloudy sediment). An incredible medium murky dark garnet color. On the nose: stunning aromas of black currants, some of that Cayuse funk(luv it), smokey roasted meat, herbs, tobacco. Taste: elegant, chewy, energetic, savory medium plus body wine with some blackberry, iodine, orange peel, touch of blueberry, earth, and a bacon fat mineral medium plus finish. YUM!! — 4 months ago

Edith Rosé Grenache 2018

9.2

My last of a 3-pack. The fruit is from the Armada Vineyard in a special two row section that is used solely for rosé.

Compared to the 2017 I had in 2020, I found this to be more mellow (not sure if it is due to vintage or the fact that this has almost four years of age compared to when I had the 2017 it had three years of age). Much more pale pink and extremely Provençal. Watermelon rind, cantaloupe and a very mineral driven aromatic profile. Not as tangy/iron driven as the 2017 I had, but the acidity seems brighter. Rose petals, black cherry skin and dragonfruit on the palate with more stony/mineral notes. No way anyone takes this to WA state (let alone Cayuse). Incredibly French. I’d consume in the next year or two, but certainly has the bones to hold on for a bit

La Paciencia Vineyard Grenache 2018

Finally managed to get these and so had to try one. Young so have to take that into account. This has some funk and will remind you of Cayuse (no duh). I would probably prefer Cayuse given the choice. This is lighter but still full-bodied and delicious. — 3 months ago

Very minimal funk in comparison to the cayuse/horsepower but the minerality is nice. Great wine. Bacon fat, floral, gravely. — 3 months ago
