Cayuse Bionic Frog Syrah 2006

Cayuse Bionic Frog Syrah 2006

SKU C077


Another exceedingly structured, concentrated Syrah from this estate that will require patience. Scorched earth, chocolate, mineral, black pepper and assorted black fruits give way to a full-bodied, beautifully proportioned wine that has fantastic purity, solid mid-palate concentration and building tannin. Give it 2-4 years and enjoy.

Wine AdvocateAll of Christophe's 2006 were stunners, and the 2006 Syrah Bionic Frog excels for its massive core of fruit, smoked herbs, chocolate, licorice and meaty aromatics. Brooding, backward, meaty and a little bloody, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and big structure, yet always stays balanced, pure and layered. It's a joy to drink today, but will cruise for another 10-15 years.
