A gorgeous, serious barrel sample, the 2010 Cayuse Syrah En Chamberlin Vineyard was impressive on all accounts, showing superb purity and depth to the aromas, medium to full body, a fantastic, seamless texture, and age-worthy, burly structure that’s buffered by awesome fruit. As with this estate’s other ‘10s, there’s vibrant, energetic feel to the wine that is truly something.
A 100% Syrah and always the most exotic and wild of the lineup, the 2010 Syrah En Chamberlin Vineyard has the Cayuse peat moss, iodine, underbrush, olive brine and gamey qualities on full display. Blossoming in the glass and showing a core of sweet fruit, it has a rich, substantial feel on the palate with a concentrated, full-bodied mouthfeel, brilliant mid-palate depth and a focused, detailed finish that carries ample finely polished tannin. Very gamey and bloody on the palate, this singular beauty will be better in another year or three and thrill for 15 years or more. Drink now-2025. (JD) 96+
Iron and smoke accents wrap around densely-layered fruits with excellent concentration. It’s gorgeous, deep and textured, with the focus on a rich raspberry and cherry core inside the frame of umami, leaf and seaweed. (PG)
Supple, expressive and round, layering black currant, dark plum, black tea, tamarind and black olive flavors over a sensuous bed of plush tannins. Shows intensity and presence. Drink now through 2020. (HS)
Good dark red. Black raspberry, smoked meat and a savory saline scent on the nose. Plush and silky in the mouth, with deep raspberry, cured ham and brown spice flavors complemented by a briney quality. No easy sweetness here in spite of its rich texture. Finishes with noble, edge-free tannins, superb length and a magically light touch for high-octane Syrah. (ST) 93+
