...this beauty is the spitting image of a great vintage of Rayas and offers a complex bouquet of black raspberries, white pepper, spring flowers, and sappy herbs. These all carry to a medium to full-bodied, ethereal Grenache that has a light, graceful texture, silky tannins, and a great finish. It shows the more elegant, almost Pinot Noir-like style of Grenache on the palate and is flawlessly balanced. Just a singluar, remarkable wine, drink it any time over the coming 15 years or more. | 97 Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.comChristophe Baron has been a pioneer of Biodynamic farming in the Walla Walla Valley of Eastern Washington. His vineyard sites are farmed in the same fashion as his Cayuse Vineyards with no herbicide, no pesticide, no fungicide, and no synthetic fertilizers. The tight meter by meter spacing with 1 vine per stake - "sur echalas" in French - allows just enough space for cultivation by Horse. The wines are a direct representation of their artisanal craftsmanship.
