International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 165

Good dark red. Aromas of raspberry, mocha, black olive and leather, plus a suggestion of apricot (from the 7% viognier component, no doubt). Rich in the mouth and impressively bright for the vintage, with complex fruit and mineral flavors framed and lifted by pepper, floral and spice elements. Very complex, dry and long syrah with superb fruit and grip. Christophe Baron told me that he did no leaf-pulling for syrah and then carried out a very gentle extraction: "like steeping tea."

The latest installment of Cayuse's largest-production, their 2009 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard ' vinified largely in foudre and aged in previously used demi-muids ' features lightly-stewed cherry and purple plum laced with cinnamon stick and clove; garlanded in violet and acacia that point to the inclusion of Viognier; and underlain by salivary gland-engaging roasted but still bloody red, organ-like meaty savor. (And speaking of organs, there is a reverberative pedal-point of low-toned flavors here that engenders an awesome sense of depth.) Sappy and intensely-concentrated yet possessed of an admirable, almost uncanny sense of buoyancy; ultra-dense yet remarkably fine-grained, this adds black pepper and tar from the classic Syrah playbook to its long litany of flavors and lusciously long and vibrant finish. It's easy to see how this would please a wine grower who reveres Noel Verset. I can't imagine it commencing to signal a need to be drunk-up for at least another dozen years, and probably not until significantly later.

Polished, effortless and juicy, with blackberry, currant, black olive and tar flavors, beautifully balanced to rotate all its facets as the finish keeps spinning. Harmonious and expressive.

Drank with friends for dinner. Absolutely explodes out of the glass with its blueberry, meaty aromas. Similar flavor on the palate. Full bodied and and decent tannins to take away anything that might seem overdone. It was a huge hit with everyone. Excellent!
