A lovely gift from @David L. Thank you sir! Different from the French expression. Looks like a Pinot in the glass. Ethereal presence on the palate. Notes of tobacco, bay leaf, cinnamon and cola. Palate is consistent with the nose. Finishes very sweet with saddle leather notes. Very nice example.

Deep garnet red, opaque core. Definitely has the 'Cayuse Funk'. Stinky and dirty with animal notes like leather. Some floral notes and perfumes herbs too. Love the super funky nose. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and full bodied Love the complexity and depth on the palate. Layers of savory herbs and olive tapenade. Great structure and super love finish. Time will definitely benefit this wine. Drink till 2030.

The 2012 Cayuse 'God Only Knows' Grenache is an ethereal wine by this estate. This incredible wine possesses classic Walla Walla mineral characteristics on the nose, along with ripe red cherries, raspberries, sage, rose petals, lavender, and blood orange all coming together beautifullt. On the palate the range of flavors at play is tremendous as it developing enticing flavors of raspberry, Unmami, Shitake mushroom, crushed wet rock, boysenberry, pomegranate seed and crushed white wildflowers. The structure of the wine makes it nearly impossible to resist as everything expands seamlessly on to the ultra-long finish, which is absolutely astonishing. This Grenache becomes even more rich and aromatically present following extended air contact. Simply put, this is nothing short of a scintillating release by Christophe Baron that shows incredible tension, minerality and richness in this near perfect vintage. Drink 2019-2030- 99

Nice, pleasant, fruit driven, but not spectacular in any way, like it, but don't love it.
