Cayuse Vineyards Syrah Bionic Frog 2006, 750mL (WA99) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Cayuse Vineyards Syrah Bionic Frog

750mL

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley

WA99
Rated 99 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2006 Bionic Frog Syrah has an awesome perfume that jumps from the glass. Notes of forest floor, underbrush, mushrooms, liquid minerals, blueberry, and black cherry lead to a remarkably succulent, voluptuous wine that is entirely seductive. Imagine having to choose between your ideal fantasy sexual partner and this wine - and you choose The Frog! That`s how good it is.` -- Jay Miller in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Christophe Baron remains in fine form. 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 some of 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. The one most visible change since last year`s visit is that some of the plowing is now done by horse power. It was quite a sight to see a giant plow horse take tiny steps to turn from one row into the next. Cayuse is no longer a secret and it may be America`s toughest mailing list to crack (consider the prices compared to some of the other cult collectibles) but do whatever it takes to get your hands on a few of these gems.`
