Dark in color, this wine offers reserved aromas of smoke, tobacco, red fruit, crème de cassis, flowers, exotic spice and funk. The palate is plush and forward but still light on its feet, showing energy and focus. Fruit and savory flavors persist on the finish, demonstrating exquisite balance. (SPS)
While I thought this cuvee would show better from bottle, it’s still impressive and shines for its finesse and elegance. Lighter in color than I remember (which was true with all of the 2013 No Girls and Cayuse releases), the 2013 Tempranillo la Paciencia offers lots of black cherries, licorice, caramelized meats and a hint of violets to go with a medium to full-bodied, very precise, fresh profile that has bright acidity and fine tannin. Give bottles 1-2 years in the cellar and enjoy through 2025. (JD)
Bright ruby-red. Dark aromas of black raspberry, blackberry and licorice lifted by rose petal. Sweet, plush dark raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors show noteworthy energy, with the sexy rose petal quality providing a lively foil to the wine's salinity. Finishes with building, ripe tannins that should hold this wine for a decade or more. 92+ Points (ST)
