Description

No Girls was originally founded as a collaboration between Cayuse Vineyards’ owner and vigneron Christophe Baron and general manager Trevor Dorland. Since the No Girls Project was launched, the wines have earned routinely high accolades, with Wine Spectator calling the 2009 vintage “some of the best Washington wines ever rated” by the magazine.

The name No Girls represents an appreciative nod to the 1950s and 60s—one of Walla Walla’s richest and most colorful eras. It’s a celebration of our history, with very specific roots in one of downtown’s most storied landmarks

The Wine Advocate 97 Points!

The nose is silky and elegant, with a focus on quality and precision that is instantly recognizable, with hints of black truffle, orange peel and a soft smokiness to the expression. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine’s mineral tension evolves into a petrichor note… The palate continues to grow with red and dark fruits…has an extraordinary length and texture…and the aftertaste lingers for days.         

James Suckling 96 Points!

This has ethereal purity and depth with very fragrant, floral and red-fruited notes on the palate. Some berry pastry and a meaty, fluid edge, too. The palate has a super fine texture with a wealth of rich red fruit. Lacy and elegant. Hauntingly long finish.

Blackberries, smoked earth, cured meats, violets, and orange rind notes all flow to a beautiful, seamless, thrillingly refined effort that reminds me of a top traditional Côte Rôtie.
