Cayuse Vineyards

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2017

Needs a bit of air upon opening to blow off the reductive edge.
Shows juicy, ripe, creamy blueberry with a bit of toasted and a fresh, mineral streak.
The magic happens on the palate - brilliant energy & depth. Great, pure, juicy, fresh blueberries with rocky minerality. Sappy, velvety tannins, vibrant acidity, so fresh.
This is brilliant stuff - complex, elegant, quite serious. And so drinkable. .

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

This wine was beautiful. Had it with the first if the season stews and the pairing was spot on. With 14 years of aging it still showed lots of fruit but the finish was smooth, velvety and copasetic. Wish all my wines had this finish! — a month ago

(93-95; Drink 2027-37)

Delayed 2023 Thanksgiving with the extended family.

Much to look forward to here, all the B-F traits to love, strawberry, black raspberry, plum, white pepper, still bold and wanting several more years to really enter the zone for my palate.
The 2004 vintage is drinking perfectly now, a respectable presentation of the AVA. I can't wait for this to catch up.
