2016 No Girls "La Paciencia Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Grenache

SKU #1481073 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of potpourri, white pepper, charcuterie, crushed flowers, soot and raspberry captivate on the nose. Exuberant and outrageously flavorful on the palate, intense accents of smoked meat and earth arise alongside the fruit. An extremely long finish of earth and flowers completes it. (SS) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Not yet released when I tasted it, the 2016 Grenache la Paciencia Vineyard has a nose that opens with a bang, boasting majestic and explosive notes of dusty red fruit—raspberries, cherries and spiced red plum—with a rocky core of minerality. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine expresses the semi-carbonic notes of sweet red fruit and dusty red flower petals with iron and lava rocks. It has expressive and silky tannins that linger on the long, ethereal finish. I am impressed! This is delicious juice and is a must-have for serious collectors. Only 338 cases made.

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Grenache La Paciencia Vineyard sports a translucent ruby color as well as a terrific bouquet of black cherries, strawberries, cold fireplace, white flowers, and spice. Seamless, elegant, and vibrant, with great tension, it's a thrilling, Rayas look-alike to drink over the coming 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lithe and expressive, with elegantly complex smoked pepper, high-toned raspberry, orange peel and river stone accents that glide toward refined tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated medium red. Alluring fresh aromas of raspberry, red cherry, smoked meat and white pepper. Silky and savory in the mouth, conveying excellent concentration and a restrained sweetness to the flavors of red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and garrigue. Finishes long and suave, with a fine dusting of tannins and savory notes of herbs and cinnamon. The Grenache comes in last at La Paciencia, noted winemaker Elizabeth Bourcier, who also told me that 2017 generally brought larger berries than 2016. (13.4% alcohol; from vines planted in 2004, 2005 and 2006; fermented with 70% whole clusters) (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2019)
