Cayuse Vineyards "En Cerise" Syrah, Walla Walla Valley 2016
97 Points Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Syrah En Cerise Vineyard is another perfumed, complex Syrah. Black cherries, licorice, earth, charcoal, and roasted herb characteristics all flow to a rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2016 that has bright yet integrated acidity, fine tannin, and a big finish. It’s one of the fresher, juicier Syrahs in the lineup, yet packs plenty of fruit, and has a remarkable salinity on the finish.
