Reviews for 2004 Cayuse Vineyards Syrah Cailloux Vineyard

IWC 93
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, November 2007
Good full medium ruby. Knockout nose offers minerals brown spices flowers bacon fat and woodsmoke. Tightly wound initially conveying an impression of superb intensity and energy. This too is simply finer-grained than most... Good full medium ruby. Knockout nose offers minerals brown spices flowers bacon fat and woodsmoke. Tightly wound initially conveying an impression of superb intensity and energy. This too is simply finer-grained than most red wines of any stripe from Washington. A juicy complex wine that finishes with terrific length and aromatic lift. With extended aeration this showed a powerful aroma of olive tapenade.

Coming from a vintage that featured a massive freeze that pretty much decimated any unburied vines, the 2004 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard is the first to really show that Cayuse funk, with lots of iodine, peat, dried herbs... Coming from a vintage that featured a massive freeze that pretty much decimated any unburied vines, the 2004 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard is the first to really show that Cayuse funk, with lots of iodine, peat, dried herbs, chocolate and exotic spice all emerging from the glass. Uber-ripe, it’s fully mature, yet still has loads of depth, big fruit and solid length through the finish. I think it’s a fair click back from the new releases, yet it still has plenty of to love and it still improves in the glass. While I found it fully mature and think it’s best drunk up, Christophe commented that it’s tasted like this for years, so you never know. - Jeb Dunnuck

Supple open-textured and immensely appealing for the balance of distinctly mineral-accented plum and cherry flavors against subtle touches of coffee wet earth and oak. Drink now through 2014. 536 cases made. –HS
