24 hour decant. Cayuse is an island. So distinctive and outstanding. Another winner.

Great aromatics. A bit flat on the palate.

The 2008 Cayuse Vineyards ‘En Chamberlin Vineyard’ Syrah (WWB, 97) is a magical wine from one of the world’s great vignerons, Christophe Baron. The flavor range here is simply insane, from blood orange to Umami and seaweed to bacon fat and salted charcuterie. Showing a brilliant salinity and beautiful savory qualities, this is a perfect example of aged, stony Syrah. At ten years old, this is peaking and is simply impossibly to put down

The 2008 ‘En Chamberlin’ is simply marvelous right now. The wine shows aromatic profile of seaweed, Umami, horse manure, wet stone, mandarin orange rind and wild blackberry, the intoxicating bouquet brings you back to the glass for more. There are ripe flavors of smoke, brisket, Umami, black olive, boysenberry pie, smoked brisket and light suggestions of coffee grounds. The texture of this wine borders ethereal, as this is translucent, yet fat on the mid-palate. This shows a wonderful combination of fruit and terroir from this warm vintage in Washington. Drink 2019-2029

Oh. My. God. I could drink this wine every night for the rest of my life. Big and fruity (like me) with just a hint of the classic Cayuse funk.

Black olive, feral notes, and loads of wild berries. Bacon and dark chocolate. Purity of flavors unmatched.
