Cayuse Vineyards Bionic Frog 2013 is an elegant, yet full-bodied Rhône style red, with a Burgundian-like velvet texture.

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.

“...an almost Burgundian flair in its forest floor, olive brine, smoked earth, dried flower and darker fruit-styled personality. One of the more streamlined, elegant examples of this cuvee, it still has a serious, lengthy feel, full-bodied richness and building underlying structure…a fabulous wine.” eRobertParker.com

"Dark and focused, this is beautifully shaped, with velvety tannins enveloping rich, black olive—laced blackberry and cherry flavors. Smoky notes weave through the long, complex finish.”
Wine Spectator

”Cayuse is no longer a secret and it may be America’s toughest mailing list to crack....but do whatever it takes to get your hands on a few of these gems.”
