2011 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

SKU #1151104 98 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The immediate impression is of savory umami aromas pierced with pine needle and sage highlights. Red and black licorice, along with sweet cured meats, bring complexity to fruit flavors of berry, cherry and plum. Toss in Provençal spices, coffee grounds and the classic Cayuse earthiness that continues through a deep, firm, beautifully defined finish. *Cellar Selection* (PG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from 100% Syrah, the 2011 Syrah En Cerise is similarly styled, with perfumed black cherry, plum, violets, spring flowers and salty minerality giving way to a seamless, thrillingly pure Syrah that has full-bodied richness, no hard edges and fine tannin. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

94 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby-red. Dark raspberry, smoke, brown spices and crushed herbs on the nose; distinctly darker than the Cailloux, the way the Côte Brune is darker than the Cote Blonde in Côte-Rôtie. Boasts outstanding thickness and spiciness on the palate; wonderfully sweet, lush and saline, with its pepper and spice elements gaining strength in the glass. (ST) 94+ Inner quote mark (12/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Packs a wallop of black cherry and blueberry flavors into a structure of unexpected transparency, hinting at black olive and pepper notes as the finish lingers easily. Shows grace and power. (HS) Inner quote mark (8/2014)
