CAYUSE VINEYARDS Syrah 'En Chamberlin Vineyard' 2013

The 2013 Cayuse 'En Chamberlin Vineyard' Syrah is a true heavyhitter artfully crafted by superstar winemaker Christophe Baron. Displaying an intense aromatic profile of seaweed, Umami, damp earth, wet gravel and wild blackberry, the intoxicating bouquet brings you back to the glass for more. On the palate there are ripe flavors of smoked pork shoulder, Umami, black olive, boysenberry pie, smoked brisket and light suggestions of coffee grounds. The texture of this wine borders ethereal, as this is translucent, yet dense on the mid-palate. What is so compelling is this level of minerality and poise has been captured despite the heat of the vintage. Overall, this is a magical Syrah from Christophe Baron which should continue to evolve gracefully over the next decade. (Best 2016-2026) - October, 2016 (OB)
