2013 Cayuse "Wallah Wallah Special #5" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (1.5L)

SKU #1284643 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the most complete, layered and elegant 2013s from Cayuse is the 2013 Syrah Walla Walla Special #5, which is made from two separate parcels that remind Christophe of the northern Rhone’s Jamet brother’s Cote Rotie. He also keeps the price low as a thank you to his customers. Giving up classic cool climate notes of green olives, black cherries, scorched earth, ash and ripe herbs, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges, incredibly fine tannin and a finish that just keeps going. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking it today, but it will be better with 4-5 years of cellaring and have two decades or more of overall longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Healthy, moderately saturated dark red. Musky aromas of dark berries, mocha and brown spices, plus a hint of creamy vanilla. Savory and youthfully tight; offering less early sex appeal than the 2012 version but this wine possesses an impressive thickness and finishes with big, broad tannins that suggest a slow evolution in bottle. Distinctly saline and backward--and perhaps less distinctive today than the single-vineyard Syrah bottlings from Cayuse. This wine represents Baron's tribute to Jamet's Côte-Rôtie, which is a blend of multiple sites. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (11/2016)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a funky briny wine that still seems a bit closed up on first pour. The palate is silky and focused, not having fully come together as of yet but still offering generous fruit, smoked meat and other savory flavors. It's all about elegance. (SS) Inner quote mark (12/2016)
