2011 CAYUSE 'NO GIRLS' Syrah Walla Walla


$129.00

Size: 750

2 Bottles Available

 

No Girls Wines was originally founded as a collaboration between Cayuse Vineyards' owner and vigneron Christophe Baron and general manager Trevor Dorland. As the project has evolved, we are very pleased to include other Cayuse employees including Cayuse assistant vigneronne Elizabeth Bourcier and controller Nancy Nestler.

The grapes come from the Cayuse La Paciencia vineyard, which means patience—appropriate since the project was ten years in the making. The vines are tightly spaced and planted on an angle, giving No Girls a personality all its own.

Winery Notes: Why No Girls?

It's a perfectly reasonable question, and there's a perfectly reasonable explanation.

The city of Walla Walla was founded in the mid-19th century by hard-working men and women— farmers, bankers, traders, prospectors, missionaries, housewives, field hands, future technologists and a myriad of others. Even a couple random adventurers named Lewis and Clark stopped by. It was a happening place. Like most American towns of its vintage, early Walla Walla offered its share of colorful characters and worldy distractions—including, dare we say it out loud, bordellos. And as fortune would have it, there had been one in the building Cayuse Vineyards founder Christophe Baron purchased in 2002

In the same mold, with the buzzwords being finesse and elegance, the 2011 Syrah La Paciencia Vineyard offers textbook pepper, olive tapenade, smoke and crunchy berry fruits in its medium to full-bodied, seamless and beautifully textured profile. Showing impressive complexity and already hard to resist, I-d lean towards drinking bottles over the coming decade as well. Distinctly different from both the Cayuse and Horsepower releases, winemaker Elizabeth Bourcier continues to fine-tune these No Girls releases and they always show a perfumed, lively style that-s hard to resist. They all come from the La Paciencia Vineyard, which is located in The Rocks around the town of Milton-Freewater, and all of the wines see only neutral oak. (JD) (6/2014) 95 Points

The first impression is of steak tartare, with blood and a saline, savory character. There’s a floral, violet topnote, and streaks of black olive, orange peel, umami and brine. Tight, toned and muscular, it’s set in a compact, perfectly proportioned frame that requires many hours of breathing to open fully. (2/2015) 94 Points
