CAYUSE Viognier, Walla Walla Valley ‘Cailloux Vineyard’ 2021

Aged 10 months in concrete and stainless steel, this an absolutely stunning bottle of Viognier that, in a blind, I would call top-level Condrieu. The Cailloux Vineyard is located in the ancient riverbed on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley with a mix of silty loam and basalt cobblestones. It really is among the best Viogniers coming from Washington State, or the United States, for that matter. Medium golden hue in the glass, it bursts with aromas of grilled tangerines, white wildflowers, honey-coated pear, and crushed stone minerality. Concentrated and full on the palate, it pleases with an incredible balance and a lengthy oily finish. Just 129 cases produced. Highly recommended.
