Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 94 Points
Wine Advocate #196 Aug 2011 Jay S Miller 94 Drink: N/A (55) The 2008 No Girls Syrah features notes of game, bacon, and blueberry leading to a plush, succulent wine with superb balance and length. To those who have been waiting patiently, donít let this offer pass you by. Ho hum. Just another great set of wines from Christophe Baron. Over the past 6 years, because of my coverage of Spain for this journal, I have gotten to know Tempranillo very well. My principal observation is that it does not travel particularly well although there are outposts of very fine Tempranillo in the Uco Valley of Mendoza and in South Australia. There is one exception, Christophe Baronís small parcel of estate-grown Tempranillo. The wineís only competition, in my opinion, is Dominio Pingus, the great Tempranillo produced by Peter Sisseck in Ribera del Duero. I would like to try the wines side-by-side, the only problem being that Pingus is ten times as expensive as Impulsivo. As a postscript of sorts, Christophe Baron has created a new label called No Girls. The origin of the name is a great story but goes beyond this journalís purview. The two wines have been specifically earmarked for those who have patiently been waiting on the Cayuse mailing list. No, these are not at quite at the same level as those wines bearing the Cayuse label but, as the scores attest, theyíre not so bad.
