Taut and well-structured, with bold bacon, licorice and blackberry aromas and complex yet sinewy plum and black olive flavors that finish with big but refined tannins. (TF, Web only-2017)
Brooding aromas of crushed rock, mineral, black olive, soot, cracked black pepper, charcuterie and dried herb lead to fresh, focused flavors that are flavorful but remain light on their feet. It shows a bit more tannic heft than this area often shows along with great length on the meaty finish. (SS)
Bright, dark red. Inviting aromas of dark berries, bacon fat, lavender, sexy herbs and brown spices. In the mouth, this Syrah's dark core of fruit is accompanied by what Baron described as "a shitload of minerality." Very firm and brooding wine in a backward, granitic style. But not at all short on energy or definition in spite of its 3.9 pH; in fact, this is quite digestible. A distinctly dark style for Cayuse Syrah, this wine finishes with substantial building tannins.

This has handy structure supporting ripe dark cherries in a fresh and more classically styled take on the variety. The palate delivers silky, long-form tannins that curl effortlessly around purple berry fruits. Drink or hold.
The 358-case 2014 Syrah en Chamberlin Vineyard (100% Syrah aged in 10-15% new 600-liter barrels) is a downright meaty, peppery effort that's reminiscent of walking into a butcher shop in the South of France. Wood smoke, black cherry, teriyaki and layers of peppered meat give way to a rich and layered yet still fresh and lightly textured beauty. With fine tannin and an inherent elegance on the palate, give bottles 2-3 years to fill out and drink over the following decade. (JD) 96+
