Horsepower

Horsepower Vineyards is about tradition and history—and making history. It’s 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, it’s a man slowly working the vineyard with his horse, just like generations before him.
 
Tradition isn’t an abstract concept to Christophe Baron, founder of both Cayuse Vineyards and Horsepower Vineyards—he 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. It’s a window to the Old World—right here in the new.
 
 
2015 Horsepower, The Tribe Pris: 1.600,00 DKK
   På lager
Of these three offerings from Horsepower, the 2015 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard will require the most time, as it's the most tight-knit at this early stage, slowly unwinding in the glass with savory aromas of raw cocoa, tapenade, nori and ripe blackberries. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a rich chassis of satiny structuring tannins and a layered, umami-laden core of fruit. At 13.6% alcohol, it's also beautifully balanced.

2016 Horsepower The Tribe Syrah Pris: 1.600,00 DKK


The 2016 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard is slightly more straight and focused than the Sur Echalas Vineyard, revealing a deep purple color, lots of cassis and plum fruits, full-bodied richness, and classic meaty, violet, and peppery aromas and flavors.
It’s slightly less exotic than the Sur Echalas release, yet is still a beautiful, concentrated, age-worthy wine. It too needs short-term cellaring and I wouldn’t touch a bottle until at least 3-4 years after release.

2016 Horsepower High Contrast Syrah Pris: 1.600,00 DKK
Reserveret til The List

A new cuvée from the High Contrast Vineyard, which covers three acres of Syrah vines and a tiny amount of Viognier, the 2016 Syrah High Contrast Vineyard offers a classic Rocks perfume of smoked earth, underbrush, ground pepper, currants, and charcoal. 
This full-bodied, bloody, meaty, salty Syrah is a singular expression of this majestic grape and could come from nowhere else. Give it 2-3 years if you can and it will keep for another 10-15.
