Comments from the winemaker
Marlene Rossman’s Review:

Cailloux Syrah is loaded with blueberries, blackberries, bitter chocolate, licorice and black cherry flavors. It has characteristic Syrah smokiness,
is plush, deep, pure and almost ready to rock!

Young, it needs a little time to come together, but  it is well- structured for aging. This is a spectacular, extracted wine of enormous strength and power.


3 Steps from Cayuse that Make Your Purchase Worthwhile:

Storing the wine-
Beyond reach of kids and winos-and ideally at 55 degrees, resting on their sides and in a dark place.

When to open wine-
A Latin saying insists, “There are four reasons for drinking wine: the arrival of a friend; one’s present or future thirst; the excellence of the wine; or any other reason.” While the perfect time to open a bottle of Cayuse is precisely when you decide to pull the cork, we find our wines benefit from at least two to three years of bottle aging.

Ageing potential-
Though ignoring the siren’s call may be difficult at times, we strongly suggest keeping your corkscrew at bay until you can no longer resist the temptation! However, we expect the red wines will mature for at least the next eight to fifteen years, depending on storage conditions.
