En Chamberlin Vineyard Syrah 2002

The finest old Cayuse I’ve had. Fruit still fresh and is lifted by good acidity, leans a little lighter in weight and more red fruit presence. All the rocks district characteristics are present adding complexity throughout. — 20 hours ago

Syrah Wallah Wallah Cailloux Vineyard 2010

Nose has a hint of burg style barnyard. Gives way to nice dark fruit and hint of chocolate A well rounded effort that finishes nicely. @cayusevineyards — 23 days ago

Walla Walla Valley The Unnamed Syrah 2012

Shay A

This was my contribution as I knew at least one other person present would enjoy it as much as I would. Not for the faint of heart, and certainly Cayuse-esque. Olive tapenade, funk and hoisin sauce on the nose. Very iron driven with spiced red fruit on the palate, with the finish turning more rich blackberry and potpourri like. This one has 5% Grenache Blanc in it instead of Viognier. — 2 months ago

Grenache Blanc is unusual.

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2004

This bottle is a good example of my experience with Cayuse Syrahs at 10+. Much darker fruited profile with some slightly raisined notes, good acidity, and the rocks district funk. — 20 hours ago

Such a big fan of these with age on them.

Camaspelo Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

Shay A

This was fun to try next to my Cayuse Syrah, so I appreciate @Keith Fisher opening this. There is no way I would have called this cab dominant if tasting blind. It has Walla Walla like Syrah notes with the iron and olive tapenade on the nose but was very dense on the mid palate. Glycerin like with muddled blackberries and sweet boysenberries. This didn’t show much for the first hour, but really changed after an additional hour. Very cool. — 24 days ago

In my limited experience with Walla Walla, terroir trumps variety.

Wild stuff. Sweet tea-smoked duck, orange peel, plum and wet forest floor. No harsh edges, just seamless and really pretty. — 10 days ago

God Only Knows Armada Vineyard Grenache

This is not a crowd pleaser. I love it. When you first open it you get blasted by this smell of barnyard funk that softens as it decants over the next hour or so. Notes of tar, farm, strawberry. — 4 days ago

An incredible year for this wine, and human society. It transports me back to 2012. I raise a glass to that time with hopes that feeling will return soon. — 2 months ago
