2009 Cayuse Vineyards Syrah Cailloux Vineyard Walla Walla Valley
Producer: Cayuse Vineyards
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: Walla Walla Valley
94 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012
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."
