Showing the house style, which is generally more finesse driven than the wines of Cayuse, the 2010 Grenache La Paciencia Vineyard is a gorgeously complex, elegant effort that has both richness and freshness. A 100% Grenache that sees no new oak whatsoever, it possesses exotic aromas and flavors of lavender, olive, river rock and spiced meats that are all grounded by a sweet core of black cherry-like fruit. Medium to full-bodied, transparent and supple, with a deft, seamless texture, juicy acidity and outstanding length, this beautifully done 2010 will drink well for 7-8 years. Drink now-2020. (JD)
The No Girls Grenache, from a vineyard adjacent to Armada (the source for the Cayuse God Only Knows Grenache) is lighter, more elegant, perhaps brighter than its companion wine, with fresh blueberry and other pie berry fruits, a streak of umami, herbal tea and impressive minerality. Almost Burgundian in style, it possesses excellent length and wonderful texture. (PG)
Broad and spicy, with tangy acidity to balance the ripe strawberry, cherry and mulberry flavors, picking up licorice and black olive notes as the finish lingers. (HS)
(from a crop level of just 1.2 tons per acre, according to winemaker Christophe Baron; no new oak): Moderately saturated medium red. Saline, Old World aromas of framboise, smoked meat, gunflint and black olive. Silky, sappy and distinctly dry, with rather delicate, salty, understated flavors of dried flowers, smoke and minerals.
