    ($50) Full, deep red. Musky, raw syrah aromas of pepper, espresso, roasted herbs and crunchy berries. Sweet, rich, creamy and sexy, with a distinctly French texture. Still a bit reduced but already quite expressive, in the style of the vintage. Finishes with very suave tannins and excellent length. With 24 hours in the recorked bottle, this showed captivating aromas of raspberry, smoke and underbrush and a silkiness of texture that reminded me of a big Burgundy.

    Lithe, supple style has a lovely range of spicy plum and cranberry flavors on a silky frame, a seductive wine that hints at stony notes as the finish lingers. 567 cases made.

    Viognier (4%) was co-fermented with Syrah to produce the candied blackberry, leather, and sweat-scented 2003 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard. Medium to full-bodied and broad on the attack, this black fruit-filled wine tightens to reveal a bright, slightly tangy finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

    Not nearly as earthy/vegetal as the En Chamberlin vineyard, but still with a fair amount of greenery. Cayuse wines are some of the most interesting, different wines being made in the US.
