Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Coming all from the En Chamberlin vineyard and made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 The Widowmaker is backward and tight, with bright acidity giving lift to notes of cassis, graphite, smoked earth and lots of crushed-rock minerality. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, yet still showing a more elegant, focused and pure style, it won't hit maturity for another 7-8 years, and will keep for 25+. Rating: 96+
JD 96
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2012 Widowmaker is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that’s all from the estate En Chamberlin vineyard. It’s unquestionably a beautiful wine and offers just a touch of rocks funk in its classic tobacco leaf, currants, cedary spice and earth aromatics. Seamless, elegant and silky on the palate, with good acidity and a fresh, focused character, it’s a dead ringer for a gorgeous St. Julien from Bordeaux.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Brooding aromas of fresh and dried herbs mix with freshly tilled soil, tomato leaf, coffee, mineral and spice box. It’s restrained in style with supple smoke, herb and cherry flavors backed by soft tannins.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Soft and round, with expressive ripe cherry and floral flavors, hinting at mineral and spice as the finish persists.

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.
