2018 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

SKU #1527014 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Lots of red and blue fruits, sappy herbs, beef blood, iron, sweet earth, and violet notes all emerge from the 2018 Syrah En Cerise Vineyard, and it's another incredibly pure, seamless wine from Baron that does everything right. Medium to full-bodied and flawlessly balanced, with silky tannins on the palate, it shows the purity and freshness of the vintage as well as a Jamet-like complexity and meatiness. It's going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 20 years in cold cellars. 97+ Inner quote mark (5/2021)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blueberries, violets, charcoal, peppercorn, thyme and dried oregano on the nose. Mushroom and earth, too. It’s full-bodied with firm, well-integrated tannins. Salty and juicy. So concentrated in flavor, yet fresh and refined, with great length. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Handsomely structured, with an appealing hint of wild game, this red unfolds deliberately with blueberry, river stone and pepper accents. (TF) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Displaying a deep ruby core and magenta rim, the 2018 Syrah en Cerise bursts with elements of smoked meats, black pepper, umami, dried tobacco and smoked pipe before elements of black raspberry, dusty cherry and spiced plum compote sway out of the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the palate shows impeccable balance with a fine mineral tension followed by elements of smoked herbs, dusty lavender and hints of summer sausage across the mid-palate with youthful tannins. The wine concludes with a wonderfully expressive finish with elements of roasted herbs, cold firepit and cured meats. The wine should continue to drink well for the next decade. (AM) 94+ Inner quote mark (7/2021)
