Cayuse Vineyards Bionic Frog Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2011

The 2011 Syrah Bionic Frog is another rocking Syrah from Christophe that does everything right. Creme de cassis, blackberry, smoked earth, toasted spice and violets emerge from the glass, and it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and brilliant length. Gaining more minerality with time in the glass... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

While I love the undeniable sense of place that Cayuse, Horsepower and No Girls provide....I always struggle to catch these prodigious wines in the right drinking window. This was big to be sure but after an 8 hour audouze and 2 hours in the decanter it was a powerful polished and nuanced Syrah like few others I've tried. The fox fur, raw hot dog and saline on the nose are so different than the taste of bramble, deep purple fruit, blackberry compote and volcanic ash that develop on the entry and mid-palate. The last glass was silky smooth on the finish with a substantial and uniquely earthy mouthfeel. Ready to drink now with time and air. Best paired with food but oh so tasty and fun.
