The 2014 'God Only Knows' is an utterly fascinating wine from the amazing team of Christophe Baron and Elizabeth Borcier of Cayuse Vineyards. This stunning Grenache was sourced from the Armada Vineyard and instantly impresses as it opens to intoxicating aromatics of red fruits, tangerine rind, floral, dried spices, smoldering ash, Earl Grey tea, wet stones and earthy nuances all taking shape. On the palate this continues to impress, as it displays striking elegance and finesse, with a remarkable silky, polished texture, and wonderful poise as it shows a bright zesty flavor profile of black raspberries, blood orange, floral, umami and black olives which continue to add complexity and impressive range as they build on the finish. The combination of purity, precision and sense of place are a thing of beauty. Overall, this is a complete success, and one of most impressive wines ever from Walla Walla. While this is absolutely outstanding now, it also possesses lovely aging potential.
