Cayuse Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2009 is a rich, silky hedonistic mouthful.

Owner/winemaker Christophe Baron is a cult personality in Washington county. Twenty years ago the then young French travelling vigneron turned a field of stones in little known Walla Walla into one of America’s finest vineyards. The terroir reminded him of the cobblestones of the southern Rhône Valley and Châteuneuf-du-Pape, and he has been crafting spectacular Rhône inspired reds ever since. These wines are very hard to come by and available through Cayuse’s mailing list only.

“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.”Wine Spectator

“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.” Stephen Tanzer
