  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($65) Good full ruby-red. Initially reticent nose shows black fruits, black olive, pepper, wild herbs, dried rose and violet face powder as it opens in the glass; I would have picked this as northern Rhone and been shocked to find I was wrong. Sweet, dense and primary, with intense flavors similar to the aromas. Really remarkably energetic and delineated for Washington syrah, offering outstanding grip and inner-mouth perfume. This somehow saturates the palate while coming off as weightless. Finishes very long and fine, with lingering notes of pepper, herbs and spices. A great vintage for Cayuse's flagship bottling.

    Tar, hot stone and licorice notes weave through the rich, dark plum, mulberry and currant aromas and flavors. A complex, beautifully knit wine that lets its flavors sail through a long, compelling finish.

    The 2007 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard might be the greatest vintage from this vineyard to date, although I think the '06 and '10 will be longer-lived. Seeing 4-6% Viognier and around 50-60% stems during fermentation, it's a blockbuster effort that exudes notions of iron, dried blood, pepper, Asian spice and sweet red and black fruits. Full-bodied, supple and sexy on the palate, it has extraordinary purity, a layered, full mid-palate and beautiful depth and tannic structure that comes through on the finish. It's far from unapproachable today, and I'd happily drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.

    My first experience with this wine and producer. Consumed over 3 nights. Liked it best as a pop and pour. Smokey bacon fat, blueberries, cranberries, and violets rounded out this superb effort on day one. Day 2 (my least favorite day) had a tart raseberry component thrown in with the rest of the fruit muted. Day 3, the fruit was back and the wine was nicely rounded out, although more fruit forward on day 1. A great wine.
