    The Cayuse Impulsivo Tempranillo 2020 emerges as a testament to Cayuse Vineyards’ pursuit of exceptional and distinct wines, a dedication embodied by renowned winemaker Christophe Baron. Crafted from 100% Tempranillo grapes, this vintage embodies the prowess of this versatile Spanish variety and showcases the profound potential of a challenging year.

    With a deep garnet color, the Impulsivo 2020 promises a sensory journey that begins with Owen Bargreen’s 96-point accolade. Dried herbs and mineral-rich rocky soils entwine with black plum and baking spices, an enticing overture to the complexities that follow.

    On the palate, a symphony of flavors unfolds ” wild blueberries and boysenberries harmonize with cedary herbs and toasted sweet spices. A dynamic interplay of concentration and freshness creates a focused and forceful mouthfeel, seamlessly balanced by a thread of elegance that lingers through the finish.

    James Suckling’s 95-point appraisal introduces a captivating ensemble of aromas, including black cherries, licorice, cloves, and dark chocolate. The wine’s full-bodied nature is complemented by fine-grained tannins, infusing it with a captivating depth and inky allure.

    Jeb Dunnuck’s 94+ points encapsulate Impulsivo’s evolution. Initially tight, it evolves into a medium to full-bodied revelation, intertwining bloody blue fruits, iodine, rose petals, and cedarwood. Ripe tannins emerge, integrating seamlessly into the layered mouthfeel, hinting at its potential for long-term maturation.

    This Tempranillo is a masterpiece of balance and complexity, a testament to the vineyard’s resilience and Christophe Baron’s artistry. A wine that captivates the present and promises an exciting journey over decades, the Cayuse Impulsivo Tempranillo 2020 invites you to indulge in its power and elegance.

    International Wine Report
    Finally, the 2020 Impulsivo from Cayuse which is made from 100% Tempranillo and is aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels. Focused and rich on the nose and on the palate, it features aspects of wild blueberries, boysenberries, cedary herbs, and toasted sweet spices. A focused and forceful mouthfeel presents itself, while still maintaining a lovely elegance on the finish

    Tight and closed, with notions of bloody blue fruits, iodine, rose petals, and cedarwood, the 2020 Impulsivo hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a nicely balanced, layered mouthfeel, and ripe tannins that emerge on the finish. I like its concentration, and its tannins are polished and beautifully integrated, but this is in need of a solid 4-5 years of bottle age to show its full potential. It should have 20-25 years of overall longevity when all is said and done.

    Enticing aromas of black cherries, blackberries, licorice, cloves, green chilis and dark chocolate. It’s full-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Beautifully deep, fleshy and inky, with excellent freshness, too. Spicy and attention-grabbing. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

    The sensational 2020 Impulsivo is a powerful wine from a tough vintage. On the nose this shows dried herbs and freshly tilled rocky soils alongside black plum and baking spices. The palate is deep and concentrated, yet maintains beautiful freshness and a strong douse of salinity. Complex, novel, enjoy this one-of-a-kind Tempranillo now and over the next six years
