The 2004 The Widowmaker "En Chamberlin Vineyard" is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak 75% new. The most massive of Cayuse's Bordeaux-styled wines this purple-colored behemoth offers an imposing nose of pain grille scorched earth espresso roast licorice and black currants. Brooding on the palate this amazingly rich and concentrated wine is an infant in terms of its development. There is enough structure to support 10-20 years in the cellar but there is so much extract and baby fat that the wine can be enjoyed now with a dry-aged prime ribeye. For those with patience The Widowmaker (could this be a reference to the potential longevity of the wine?) should drink well through 2050. Personally I look forward to drinking this wine when I'm 105.

This smells of herbs but offers a mouthful of gorgeous plum and currant fruit on a supple frame. Finishes with harmony and a distinct stylishness. The savory notes add plenty of interest and the oak integrates smoothly... This smells of herbs but offers a mouthful of gorgeous plum and currant fruit on a supple frame.
