Cayuse En Cerise vs Cailloux

#1 Post by bob poirier » August 21st, 2019, 11:12 am

Mailer is out I've only had cailloux, is there any substantial difference between the 2? Stylistically or otherwise?

Cailloux co-ferments with Viognier i believe. i find this a bit more 'blue' fruit.
Cerise is pure syrah.. i find this a bit more 'iron'y and 'red fruit'.

That's just a personal view.. there are super experienced Cayuse tasters on this board tho that can probably chime in with more thoughts..

Mark is right on both counts. Cailloux has a small amount of Viognier. I thus find it is a bit more floral, less feral, than the other Cayuse syrahs (all the others are pure syrah). I have tended to prefer the pure syrahs to the Cailloux, though recently I have had some of the latter which have been fantastic.
