Cayuse Vineyards Bionic Frog Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2008

$259

The 2008 Syrah Bionic Frog strikes me as the most complex of the Rhone-style offerings. Smoke, game, exotic spices, black truffle, and assorted black and blue fruits lead to a lengthy, impeccably balanced, pleasure-bent offering that will drink nicely for 10-12 years. Robert Parker

To celebrate 5,500 reviews on Vivino, here is a beautiful wine from Washington State. Dark ruby in color with a short brick rim. Sweet nose of blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and black pepper. Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs. Dry and fruity on the palate with sweet cherries, plums, blueberries, oak, light vanilla, spices, espresso, cola, light vegetables, leather, earth, tobacco, vinaigrette, peppercorn, pencil lead, light bell pepper and dark chocolates. Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries. This is a great Syrah from Washington State. Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant, yet rich. Just Beautiful. This 12 year old is drinking very nicely now and will continue to age nicely in the next decade. Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show some tannins. Wine Enthusiasts 100 points. Robert Parker 97 points. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Tasty and delicious. 14.4% alcohol by volume. 93 points. $275.

Nearly perfect. Heavy meat and umami nose. Black fruit and olive tapenade taste notes. More southern Rhône in style than northern. Ultra sexy tannins and utterly integrated in all ways. Tasted with Christophe Baron at Matter of Taste.
