95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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. (JD)  (6/2015)

95 points Wine Spectator

Supple, satiny, polished and expressive, layering plum, cherry and sassafras flavors onto an open-textured frame, gliding easily into a long and multilayered finish. (HS)  (8/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Quite lightly colored, this wine displays perfumed aromas of green and black olive, stargazer lilies, mineral, peat and moist earth. The flavors are both ethereally light and rich, tingling the palate with seemingly endless savoriness. (SS)  (9/2015)

Moderately saturated pale red. Old World nose offers scents of raspberry, cranberry, smoke, flint, peony, rose petal and pink peppercorn. A juicy, pure wine with lovely precision and finesse, with the red berry flavors complicated by saline minerality; the mouthfeel here is distinctly Burgundian. Finishes with slightly edgy tannins and acidity but still offers considerable early appeal for its sheer verve. A fascinating Washington Grenache. Elizabeth Bourcier, who is 'assistant vigneronne' at Cayuse, has recently taken over responsibility for the No Girls wines. She noted that the crop level here was just 1.2 tons per acre; the Paciencia vineyard is situated just north of Armada, in the Rocks district. (ST)  (11/2015)
