This vineyard was planted specifically for the No Girls project. The wine is fresh, fragrant and intensely floral, with a mix of rosewater and orange zest. Elegant, with a delicate, lacy texture, the flavors are savory and salty, braced with stiff, lightly peppery tannins. Notes of funk and mushroom come into play as it finishes gracefully and with unexpected length. (PG)
The 2011 Grenache La Paciencia Vineyard is 100% Grenache that was harvested on October 23 and aged 22 months in neutral puncheons. Elegant and finesse driven, with a sweet bouquet of wild strawberries, mint, game, rose petal and dried flowers, it is medium to full-bodied, seamless and silky on the palate, with no hard edges. Already delicious, it will drink beautifully over the coming decade or more. (JD)
Good medium red. Musky strawberry, raspberry, black truffle and black pepper on the nose; a bit higher-pitched than the God Only Knows Grenache Christophe Baron also makes under his Cayuse label. Concentrated and saline, offering piquant peppery lift to the extremely primary red berry flavors. Sharply delineated, very elegant Grenache made without any new oak. Less rich than the God Only Knows (these vines, mostly from Alban clones, were planted between 2003 and 2005) but with more early punch. Finishes firm and smoky, with savory tannins and excellent verve. Baron recommends serving this wine with white meats or with Asian-style hardshell crab. The La Paciencia Vineyard is located just north of the very stony, high-density Armada Vineyard. The only significant difference between the two parcels is that the rows in La Paciencia are angled differently and get less direct sunlight. (ST) 92+?
Sensationally complex and subtle, with spicy, savory and smoky nuances around a core of pure currant and plum fruit. The aftertaste reveals a bitter radish bite, but the overall effect is warm, deft and inviting. Drink now through 2019. (HS)
