2009 Cayuse "Impulsivo" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo

SKU #1090103 97 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark More ripe and decadent than the 2010, yet still showing the focused elegance that this cuvee always has, the 2009 Impulsivo has lots of plum, wood spice, beef broth and toasted bread notes in a full-bodied, layered and massively rich style. There’s lots of pleasure to be had here now, but it’s another wine that will see its 20th birthday in fine form. (JD) 97+ Inner quote mark (5/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Dark and smoky, this wine is relatively tannic and emphasizes flavors of leaf, bark, root and herb. There’s plenty of depth and exceptional power to this wine, which seems unique among New World Tempranillos. *Cellar Selection* (PG) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Supple, refined and distinctive for its flavors of black olive and black cherry, with hints of rosemary and thyme on the finish. Offers depth and immense appeal. (HS) Inner quote mark (8/2012)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good dark ruby-red. Very ripe, liqueur-like nose hints at mocha, underbrush and porcini. Lush, sweet and very ripe; a bit fresher and less monolithic in the mouth than the nose suggests, with dark cherry and dark berry flavors dominating. The slightly funky finish shows substantial dusty tannins and a saline unami quality but could use a bit more brightness and lift. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2012)
