Critical Acclaim

IWR 99
International Wine Report
A cult-classic amount wine aficionados, the 100% Syrah 2020 Bionic Frog from Cayuse stuns from beginning to end. Don’t let the cartoony label fool you, this is a serious bottle of wine that was aged for 18 months in 15-20% new French oak barrels and sports a dark purple and garnet core with a lighter purple rim. Dark fruit dominates, with black plum flesh and currants taking center stage. Then comes the meaty aspects alongside toasted black peppercorn and touches of smoked pork. Crisp acidity and silky tannins merge on the palate, and it finishes with a stony minerality and meaty component that I couldn’t get enough of. Highly recommended and editor’s choice

Another brilliant Syrah from this team, the 2020 Syrah Bionic Frog reveals a translucent ruby hue to go with a rocking bouquet of ripe framboise and mulberry-like fruits as well as notions of smoked earth, spring flowers, rose petals, ground pepper, graphite, and crushed stone. (It has more than a passing resemblance to a great vintage of Jamet's Côte Rôtie Côte Brune.) Incredibly complex, medium to full-bodied, and elegant on the palate, it has ripe, integrated tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. It's a stunning Syrah that deserves 3-5 years of bottle age and will evolve for two decades in cold cellars

James Suckling
This is dark and earthy with blackberry bush, black raspberries, baking spices and black soil. Full-bodied with depth and finesse. So wide and plush, with tight but refined, silky tannins that show some creaminess. Seamless and long, with an array of floral and spicy flavors to the dark fruit. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

Another standout wine by Cayuse Vineyards, the 2020 Bionic Frog Syrah was stored in 20% new large format French oak before bottling. You have to love the seamless texture of this wine. Deep dark fig, black currant and black raspberry flavors combine with shades of sweet pipe tobacco and wet stone on the palate. Finishing very long with dense dark cherry flavors, wet rock and minerals, this is a stunning wine that is up there with the finest made this vintage.
VIN 96
Vinous
Darkly alluring and savory, the 2020 Syrah Bionic Frog smolders up from the glass with a burst of wild herbs, tomato leaf, dark earth and black currants. Supremely silky, this soothes with its ripe fruits and sweet inner florals, yet there's a savory, nearly sultry core. Lavender nuances resonate throughout. It tapers off long and staining, leaving a tinge of juicy acidity to balance, as violet inner florals linger throughout the pleasantly chewy finale.
