Cayuse Vineyards:
Cayuse is a winery located in Walla Walla, Washington. It was founded in the late 1990s by winemaker Christophe Baron, son of Champagne producers for Baron Albert.

Cayuse is a winery located in Walla Walla, Washington. It was founded in the late 1990s by winemaker Christophe Baron, son of Champagne producers for Baron Albert. On a visit to the area in 1996, he stumbled upon an unsullied bit of rocky soil on the Oregon side of the Washington/Oregon border. He suspected this territory had vast similarities in terroir and climate with some of the most prestigious French regions in the Rhone valley and Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Ignoring naysayers, he acted on his intuition and decided to establish vineyards. These types of conditions force vines to dig deep for moisture, resulting in concentrated, structured fruit. He named the wine for the Cayuse, a Native American tribe, themselves named after the French word “cailloux” (“rocks”). The vineyards are mostly planted with Syrah, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Merlot, Mourvedre, Roussane, Tempranillo and Viognier. Shortly after Baron produced his first vintage, he garnered top ratings from the likes of Robert Parker, and Cayuse became a sought after cult wine. The vineyard settlement he founded is now referred to as the “Rocks” area of the Walla Walla valley. Cayuse is also the first winery in the region to practice biodynamic viticultural methods, beginning in 2002.  Read less

Good bright ruby-red. Downright Rhone-like aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat and dusty spices. Sweet, dense and deep, with lush dark raspberry fruit complicated by smoke and sage. Finishes long, positively dry and herbal, with a distinctly wild ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Syrah wine from Washington in USA. 2007 Cayuse Vineyards Syrah en Cerise 750ml
