"The 2015 Syrah Sur Echalas Vineyard is just as striking as its Grenache sibling, unfurling with an equally complex nose of sweet cassis, beef blood, bitter cocoa, peony and violets, with notions of grilled meat and truffle emerging with time. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and amazingly intense, with a deep and multidimensional core framed by remarkably satiny, layered tannins, concluding with a long, saline finish."

The Estate
Horsepower Vineyards is about tradition and historyand making history. Its a connection between a vigneron and his roots. An homage to craft and family. An embrace of the earth that seems at once old-fashioned and new.
And at its simplest, its a man slowly working the vineyard with his horse, just like generations before him.

Tradition isnt an abstract concept to Christophe Baron, founder of both Cayuse Vineyards and Horsepower Vineyardshe was born into it.

The oldest son of the centuries-old Champagne house, Baron Albert, his family has worked their land in the Marne Valley of France since 1677. As recently as 1957 horses still did all of the vineyard cultivation.

Horsepower represents a return to that time, to a simplicity of craftsmanship and purpose that has been largely lost in the modern translation. Its a window to the Old Worldright here in the new.
