Surprises me not all Don, I think we both agree the Armada is the real gem (over the frog) of the Cayuse lineup. The 07 was the best domestic Syrah I have ever had.
I know a 2005 Bionic Frog that will beg to differ!

Re: Winemaker to Watch - Travis Allen - Kobayashi Wines

Order in for:

4 Viognier (2018 was revelatory and Travis told me the 2019 is even better)

4 Marsanne (2017 a unique and thoughtful expression)

3 Syrah Sans Soufre (Cannot wait!)
