There are 298 cases of the 2012 Grenache La Paciencia Vineyard and it’s unquestionably the best vintage of this wine to date. Offering fabulous intensity in its strawberry, raspberry, spice, pepper and floral bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, elegant texture and a seamless, lengthy finish. This wows with its purity and finesse-driven style more than for weight or richness, and it should evolve nicely given its overall balance. Drink 2016-2024

Winemaker Elizabeth Bourcier continues to fine-tune these No Girls releases and I think these 2012s are her greatest wines to date. These all come from the La Paciencia vineyard, and they've added a new Tempranillo release in 2012. The style here is similar to Cayuse (which is where the wines are made), yet these always show less overt power and more finesse.
