This, like the Cayuse GOK, is a remarkable expression of Grenache. At first, the wild strawberry and cherry were on the nose and in the mouth, with a finish of wild game (venison?) and olive. The last glass has less bright fruit but a violet nose with a very saline, wild game finish. Impressive.
Q4 wine club - Rhone varietals that are not Syrah (The Apt): Wine #3: Drank as part of a blind tasting, but as this was one of our contributions I knew what it was. Decanted for a few hours before pouring. This is my first experience with the No Girls Grenache and I really enjoyed it although I preferred the Cayuse God Only Knows. This was just a slightly more basic and simple version - had the funk, but not as many of the underlying layers. Nice and crisp wine though that knows what it wants to be. Just a hint of red fruit. Maybe one of the most polarizing wines of the tasting with half the group liking it and half really not.

(No Girls Grenache Walla Walla Valley) Fairly dark in color for Grenache, this is an aromatic wine full of mineral, earthy funk, truffle, and floral notes. The palate is soft and perfumed, on the lighter side of medium bodied, like liquid rocks, teeming with intensity and a tannin profile more prominent than is frequently seen in this variety. 163 cases produced.
