Awesome Reviews! We are thrilled that our wines continue to receive fantastic reviews—with many garnering the top reviews from our region. But don’t take our word for it; professional reviewers raved about the 2020 vintage:
98 Points “2020 Armada Vineyard Syrah… one of the standouts in the vintage and has a beautiful core of fruit as well as mid-palate density. Ripe black cherries, blackberries, ground pepper, iodine, rose petals, and crushed stone define the aromatics, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a broad, layered mouthfeel, gorgeous tannins, and a great, great finish.”

Other reviewers like Jeremy Young of International Wine Report, Owen Bargreen of owenbargreen.com, and James Suckling of jamessuckling.com were just as effusive, awarding scores like 100, 99, 98, 97+, 97, you get the picture. See all the reviews at cayusevineyards.com.
About the Vintage
In 2022 we experienced a cooler Spring transitioning into a warm Summer, reminding us of what we encountered with the 2017 vintage. 2022 brought a long growing season, creating optimal conditions for fruit ripening. The last grapes were harvested just before the October rains hit the Stones of the Walla Walla Valley. Though still young, these wines already show elegance and balance with refined tannins and tremendous power.
