2013 No Girls "La Paciencia Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Grenache

SKU #1297927 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Leading off the 2013s from bottle, the 2013 Grenache la Paciencia Vineyard is getting up there with some of the top Grenache releases to come out of the New World. Incredibly perfumed, with notes of herbes de Provence, flowers, dried strawberries and assorted red fruits, it’s medium to full-bodied, seamless and impeccably balanced. The buzz words here are perfume, complexity and elegance. It’s also worth noting that the Grenache vines for this wine come from the famed Rayas lieu-dit in Chateauneuf du Pape. Focusing exclusively on the Paciencia Vineyard, located in the Rocks region of Walla Walla, these No Girls releases are made by Elizabeth Bourcier at the Cayuse winery just outside of the town of Milton-Freewater (she's also the assistant winemaker at Cayuse). While I think there was a qualitative difference between the Cayuse releases and the No Girls in the past, that’s no longer the case today, and these fabulous wines are as good as anything coming out of the region today.

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The aromas pop with notes of fresh flowers, smoked meat, stems, mineral, smoke, white pepper and an earthy funk. The flavors dance on the palate, with mouthwatering fruit and savory notes that lead to an outrageously long finish. It's equal parts elegance and intensity. (SS) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sleek and polished, with a structured backbone, offering floral raspberry and bacon fat aromas and layered red plum and cracked pepper flavors that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2023. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated medium red. Musky raspberry and strawberry fruit aromas are complicated by smoke, flint, olive tapenade and a note of garrigue on the perfumed nose. Delivers an intriguing sweet/savory character to its flavors of red berries, cherries in cream, flinty minerals and smoke. Suppler than past vintages of this wine but still quite precise in the middle palate. The resounding finish is firmly tannic and long, leaving an impression of weightlessness that's rare for Grenache in the New World. This fruit is actually harvested later than Cayuse's Armada Grenache but it shows no lack of lift. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2016)
