This wine is very enjoyable and also very young. I opened it yesterday and I’m writing a review on it 24 hours later. Initially it was nothing but black pepper on the nose with minimal fruit and a lot of pepper. Today the pepper is subdued and there is some enjoyable red fruit. Old world and new world collide. Don’t open this for at least 5 years. It’s an amazing wine! One for the cellar for sure. — 4 days ago
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.

We had this on 9/15-16/19. A real good Cab from a low rated Vintage. Blackberry, blueberry some leather and oak on the palate. Well balanced, full bodied, smooth finish. — 5 days ago
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. — 13 days ago
Funky and terrific with a smoky meal of roasted chicken thighs and sweet potatoes with lots of sage, coriander and paprika. — 5 days ago
This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Walla Walla Valley, Washington.
Showing black fruits with chocolates, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, earth and green herbs.
Dry on the palate with a spicy and tangy finish.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
$33. — 15 days ago
