The Cayuse 2005 Syrah En Chamberlin Vineyard -- from what Baron describes as 'a normal vintage for Washington: not too hot, but ripe; (En Chamberlin Syrah having been) picked the third week of September; and the first at our new facility and with indigenous yeasts' -- features strongly bittersweet, medicinal iodine- and alkali-tinged herbal and dark berry essences along with savory, smoky evocations of roasted poultry pan drippings. Its diversity; seamlessness; almost oily richness of texture; and finishing crescendo are utterly striking. (DS)
Deep ruby-red. Dark fruits, black pepper, licorice, mocha and brown spices on the nose: Baron's answer to La Landonne? Wonderfully intense and deep, with powerful dark fruit flavors sexed up by an exotic note of apricot. Finishes with outstanding mounting persistence and restrained sweetness. It would be a treat to see this trio of vineyard-designated Syrahs in about five years. Baron told me that this vineyard was the first Syrah planted on its own rootstock in Walla Walla Valley (in 2000).
Smooth and velvety, with a definite black olive note weaving through the blackberry, plum and white pepper flavors, which keep growing as the finish persists. Deft and filled with personality, this has plenty of power to age gracefully.
