2011 Cayuse "The Widowmaker" Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1151106 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This glorious, evocative wine calls up a rich and sensuous catalog of scents and flavors. Black truffle, sea salt, clean earth, fungus, strawberry, liquid rocks, umami, tar...? the words pour out with each sniff and swallow. It’s detailed, substantial and refined, gathering itself for a long, generous, captivating finish. *Cellar Selection* (PG) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 The Widowmaker is a beauty. One of the top Cabernet Sauvignons in the vintage, it offers up classic red and black currant fruit, earth, smoked meats and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless texture on the palate that carries masses of beautifully polished tannin. Aged 18 months in 50-60% new French oak, it’s a relatively forward vintage for this cuvée (which is the norm for the vintage) that can be enjoyed anytime. (JD) 95+ Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, deep red. Rather flinty aromas of currant, bloody steak, smoke and cold steel. Offers outstanding freshness and inner-mouth perfume to its red and black fruit and mineral flavors complicated by smoke. Some past vintages of this bottling have been thicker and more saline, but this wine offers a compelling light touch that’s a reflection of its vintage. Superb. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (12/2014)
