2005 Cayuse Bionic Frog Syrah - 99 pts!
The kinkiest of the Syrahs is the 2005 Bionic Frog which was made with 25% stems. It was aged in Dominique Laurent barrels 30% new. Purple/black-colored it has a sexy perfume of earth notes mineral spice box and blueberry. Layered opulent and super-rich the finish just goes on and on. Christophe Baron strikes again. His estate just on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla AVA consists of five small but distinct vineyards (41 acres in total - with more on the way). Syrah and the Bordeaux varietals are the principal focus but the finest parcels of Tempranillo Viognier and Grenache grown in the USA are on this estate. The vineyards are farmed biodynamically and much of the estate is planted on rootstock to prepare for the day when phylloxera works its way through Walla Walla. The wines are all fermented with indigenous yeasts and bottled unfined and unfiltered. RP
