Pepper a raw steak. Throw in some Worcester sauce and Italian herbs, blend it up and somehow find a way to make that into a WINE and this is the backbone of this wine. VERY meaty backbone. There was good black fruit puree in there as well to provide somewhat of a balance. These Cayuse Syrahs are no joke, and definitely accomplish what they were set out to accomplish! For a wine that I did not think was going to finish soft and elegant, it finished soft and elegant!

Bell pepper and, well, bell pepper, with smoked meat/bacon fat on the finish. Outstanding! Good selection, Sammy, and congrats!

Tasted blind. I would hve bet my first six kids this was a high end cote Rotie (not quite LaLa level). The black pepper was off the chart. Never had an American terroir put off this much earth. Put it on your buy list

Rock star. Not for everybody but I love it. Super funky nose and then chocolate covered boysenberries. Black pepper finish. Amazing and ballsy wine that's worth every penny
