2007 Cayuse "Impulsivo - En Chamberlin Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo

SKU #1088694 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Impulsivo has an elegant, seamless and layered profile, with lots of bloody meat, blackcurrants, wild herbs and licorice giving way to a full-bodied, ripe, yet perfectly balanced palate. There’s superb overall freshness here, and it has terrific mid-palate concentration, with ripe tannin. The buzz words here are balanced and elegance, yet as with most of Christophe’s wines, it doesn’t give any ground on texture or richness. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep ruby. Complex, slightly reduced nose offers black cherry, smoked meat, minerals and dark chocolate. Then broad and sweet on the palate, with subtle, wild flavors of blueberry, cherry, smoke, rose and gunflint. Offers a very suave mouthfeel and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. The most intriguing Tempranillo to date from Cayuse. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2010)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This Tempranillo is firm, tight, acidic and compact, a difficult wine to assess. It’s got the Cayuse funk, with sharper acidity and a wet stone foundation. The fruit is very tart and tight, with a base of cement and some spice and herb. (PG) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense, dark and powerful, yet this somehow takes flight and avoids being weighty. Black olive and licorice flavors play against dark berry flavors, all of it lingering nicely. (HS) Inner quote mark (8/2010)
