Cayuse, Walla Walla Valley, Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2008


97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Another thrilling ’08 that continues to shows brilliantly, the 2008 Cayuse Syrah Cailloux Vineyard is elegant and perfumed, with classic Cayuse aromas of kirsch liqueur, rolled stones, meat juice, and smoked herb qualities flowing to a full-bodied, rich, perfectly balanced wine. This vineyard always shows the most silky, elegant profile of any of Christophe’s wines, and this vintage is no exception. (6/2012)

97 points Wine Advocate

A vintage that saw rain in late September, the 2008 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard is a co-fermented blend of 90+% Syrah and the balance Viognier, that wasn’t harvested until October 10. Hitting 14.1% natural alcohol, it’s drinking beautifully today and offers a meaty, iodine, peppery and plum-pit bouquet to go with a full-bodied, refined and elegant feel on the palate. It shows more and more floral and rose petal qualities with time in the glass, has plenty of mid-palate depth and will have no issues evolving for another decade. (JD)(6/2015)
