    Introducing the Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2020, a wine that defies convention and soars with its exceptional blend. Crafted under the meticulous guidance of winemaker Christophe Baron, this wine is a true embodiment of artistry and terroir.

    Derived from vineyards nestled within the ancient riverbed of the Walla Walla River on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley, the Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2020 inherits its distinctive character from the unique soil composition. The topsoil, a medley of silty loam and basalt cobblestones, overlays a layer of deep, compacted cobblestones. This exceptional foundation nurtures a blend of 46% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon into a harmonious symphony of flavors.

    Bearing witness to its critical acclaim, the Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2020 boasts an array of sensory delights. With 96 points from the International Wine Report, it captivates with aromas of black currant, black raspberry, and delicate notes of vanilla bean and sweet clove. The palate revels in the dance of sensual flavors, intertwined with hints of savory herbs, finishing with a touch of mountain sage and saline allure.

    James Suckling, awarding 96 points, praises its savory and flavorful nature, with aromas ranging from wild cherries and tea leaves to bergamot and olives. Owen Bargreen’s 95 points commend its refinement, with notes of red bell pepper, red currants, and menthol playing across the palate in harmony.

    Aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels, the Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2020 is a small-production gem, a mere 229 cases crafted to perfection. As it tightens and evolves, this Bordeaux blend invites anticipation for its future. With its alluring complexity, captivating aromas, and masterful structure, the Flying Pig Red 2020 is a testament to the artistic vision of Cayuse Vineyards and a celebration of the Walla Walla Valley’s unique terroir.

    This stunning blend of 46% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels. The 2020 Flying Pig abounds with sensual aromas and flavors of savory herbs, hints of vanilla bean and sweet clove, and black currant and black raspberry. It has an incredible structure with a perfect balance of tannin and acidity while finishing with a lovely saline and mountain sage note on the mid-palate. A small production of 229 cases was made. Highly recommended. —Jeremy Young,

    Gorgeously savory and flavorful Bordeaux blend with aromas of tea leaves, wild cherries, nutmeg, grilled herbs, bergamot and olives. Seaweed, too. It’s medium- to full-bodied with chalky, fine tannins. Fresh earthiness here. Tightens at the end. 46% cabernet franc, 37% merlot and 17% cabernet sauvignon. Drink from 2024

    The 2020 Flying Pig is a follow up to the truly outstanding 2019 edition. This version blends 46% Cabernet Franc with 37% Merlot and the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon. Stored for 19 months in 30% new oak, this offers gorgeous red bell pepper, red currants and menthol notes on the palate with stony and savory accents truly rocking. Very refined, with good tension and flavor density, this is beautiful wine to savor now.
