Cayuse Vineyards Bionic Frog Syrah 2016
The Cayuse Bionic Frog 2016 is a stunning example of what can be achieved with biodynamic farming and minimal intervention winemaking. The wine displays a deep purple color, with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with flavors of ripe dark fruit, leather, and espresso. The tannins are firm and well-structured, leading to a long and satisfying finish. This wine represents the pinnacle of Cayuse's winemaking philosophy and is a must-try for any serious wine collector or enthusiast.
The aromas fascinate, with notes of funk, earth, savory green olive, herb, soot, umami, black pepper, black olive brine, smoked meat and caper. It shows a profound sense of intensity, balance and layering to the savory and floral flavors that continue through the long, richly flavored finish of firepit and flowers. Sean P. Sullivan
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2016 Syrah Bionic Frog needs no introduction, as its reputation proceeds it. Aromas of black fruit, olive and savory herbs with hints of mustard seed waft from the nose. The palate shows soft flavors of smoke and ash over a firm core of minerality that is very pleasurable, continuing on to the long-lingering finish and aftertaste of olive and dark berries. An instant success, only 509 cases were created. - Reviewed by Anthony Mueller
