CAYUSE Syrah, Walla Walla Valley ‘Cailloux Vineyard’ 2020

The 2020 Cailloux Vineyard Syrah is a combination of 96% Syrah and 4% Viognier that is co-fermented and then aged in 15-20% new French oak barrels for approximately 18 months. I love the lift that the small addition of Viognier adds to this wine - think white wildflowers on top of the meaty essence that only wine from this area can have. Dark purple cored with a bluish rim, ti boasts lovely notes of boysenberry, dried pink grapefruit zest, black-peppered charcuterie, and crushed olives. Wonderfully lush and robust, it finishes with that stony minerality and saline aspect that I adore from the wines of Cayuse. 829 cases were made of this stunning Syrah. Highly recommended.
