Bought 2 of these back in 2010, so this was the longest held bottle I owned.
Bought for the name, our friends got married in 2010 and her name was Nina, so bought a few wines with her name on the label for their table. Kept one for us. Figured it would be brown swill by now but not the case, great color to it, its no Cayuse but definitely more than I expected.
Just checked my history, turns out I bought 3, drank one 280 weeks ago, can’t believe I forgot🤦🏼 — 2 years ago
This was my contribution as I knew at least one other person present would enjoy it as much as I would. Not for the faint of heart, and certainly Cayuse-esque. Olive tapenade, funk and hoisin sauce on the nose. Very iron driven with spiced red fruit on the palate, with the finish turning more rich blackberry and potpourri like. This one has 5% Grenache Blanc in it instead of Viognier. — 3 years ago
Of blinded I would have guessed Washington state syrah, tasted like a Cayuse. — 3 years ago
