Armada Vineyard Syrah 2005

This 2005 bottle shows the length and complexity Washington syrah can reach with maturity. This has the gamy and smoky nuance of a Northern Rhône with the fruit still front and center as you'd expect from the New World. Smoke, black pepper, forest floor, blackberry, leather and licorice all play a part. Full bodied, mature tannin structure long finish. — 9 days ago

What vintage?

Cayuse Vineyards

The Lovers Cabernet-Syrah Blend 2011

2011 vintage. Really opened up and softened after about 90 mins. Drank this next to a Napa cab and our guests just kept going back to this one. Super engaging and the Rocks fruit added depth and another dimension. Fun night. — a month ago

Happy #winewednesday everyone! Since it’s #wawinemonth we decided to crack open this 2011 Cayuse Syrah from the Cailloux Vineyard.

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.

My rating is the same as Mark’s but for a different reason. I love funky/savory style Syrahs (Cayuse especially), but this had zero of those notes on the nose...out of whack baked fig and liqueur like black cherries. However, the finish here reminded me of beef stew broth. Not iron/bloody, but definitely savory at the finish with added peppercorn. Seemed disjointed. — 18 days ago

Too much grilled rabbit stew here for me. Those that like Sarah to be extra needy and funky we're saying that this one was more balanced, but I respectfully disagree. This was full all out game dish deluxe with cigar and smoke, pipe tobacco. There was absolutely no balance here. Not thinking this is showing decline at 12 years of age for a Napa Syrah. I can respect this wine for what it is....with a 91.
