The Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2021 is a masterpiece from Cayuse Vineyards, crafted with the exceptional expertise of winemaker Christophe Baron. This wine is a testament to the fusion of innovative winemaking and the unique terroir of the Walla Walla Valley.

Originating from the En Cerise Vineyard, which was once a thriving cherry orchard, the Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2021 inherits a legacy of richness and vitality. This Bordeaux-style blend, predominantly featuring 40% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot, with the remaining balance made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, is aged meticulously for 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels. This careful aging process imparts a subtle yet complex character to the wine.

In the glass, the Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2021 presents a deep, vibrant ruby color, hinting at the richness that awaits. The aroma is an intricate tapestry of dark cherries, ripe plums, and a hint of cassis, interwoven with delicate notes of cedar and spice from the French oak aging. A deeper inhalation reveals a subtle undertone of earthy minerality, a signature of the vineyard’s unique soil composition.

Upon tasting, the wine unveils a harmonious blend of flavors. The palate is greeted with the lushness of dark fruits, primarily cherries and plums, echoed from the aroma. This fruit-forward profile is beautifully balanced by a backbone of refined tannins and a bright acidity that brings freshness to the wine. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering impression of elegance and complexity.

The Cayuse Flying Pig Red 2021, with its alcohol content of 13.8%, is not just a wine but an experience. It is a perfect illustration of the craftsmanship and terroir-focused approach of Cayuse Vineyards. This wine has garnered critical acclaim for its distinctive profile and exceptional quality, reflecting the winery’s commitment to producing wines that are both reflective of their origin and outstanding in their class.

The Cayuse Vineyards Flying Pig Red 2021 is available for sale and is a must-try for enthusiasts seeking a wine that combines the elegance of Bordeaux blends with the unique expression of the Walla Walla Valley. This wine is a remarkable addition to any collection, promising a memorable tasting experience that embodies the spirit and expertise of Cayuse Vineyards.
