The Cayalla RTW is a wine produced by Firesteed Cellars. 2004 was the first produced vintage of this great red wine blend and the grapes come from top sourced sites in the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Valley appellations out of Oregon and Washington state.
The Cayalla name was derived from the Cayuse and Walla Walla tribes in the eastern part of Washington and Oregon.
We currently still offer the 2004 vintage on our list, which is a blend from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The wine shows notes of berries, vanilla bean and some pleasant herbal notes. On the pallate, chocolate and dark cherry notes linger along a good balance of earth & minerals and a touch of acidity. This wine is a steal and a must try for Pacific North-East wine lovers. Anybody who had other wines from Howard Rossbach's Firesteed Cellars, knows that this must be a a great wine.
On our list under interesting reds at $8/glass or $32/bottle.
