Winemaker Notes

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Incorporating 16% Merlot, the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated 2012 Camaspelo exhibits ripe black cherry, cassis, lead pencil shavings, toast and notable minerality in its full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated personality. Showing more meatiness with air, this is a structured 2012 that has serious mid-palate depth, high, yet sweet, tannin and a blockbuster finish. It will be a longer-term prospect than most of Christophe’s 2012s. Range: 94-97+
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Fresh and expressive, supple and round, with juicy red berry and spice flavors, hinting at sage and floral notes as the finish lingers enticingly. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2022.

An adventure in the new world

Christophe Baron grew up among the vineyards and cellars of his family's centuries-old Champagne house, Baron Albert. His sense of adventure, however, led him to become the first Frenchman to establish a winery in Washington State.

While visiting the Walla Walla Valley in 1996, Christophe spotted a plot of land that had been plowed up to reveal acres of softball-sized stones. This stony soil, this terroir, was just like that of some of the most prestigious French appellations. The difficult ground would stress the grapevines, making them produce more mature, concentrated fruit.

He named his vineyard after the Cayuse, a Native American tribe whose name was taken from the French cailloux--which means, rocks. Hours of back-breaking work later, Cayuse Vineyards has become five vineyards encompassing 41 acres.

The majority is planted with Syrah, and the rest dedicated to Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Merlot, Mourvèdre, Roussanne, Tempranillo and Viognier. All of the vineyards are planted in rocky earth within the Walla Walla Valley appellation. Cayuse was the first winery in Washington State to use biodynamic farming methods.
