No Girls Grenache 2017

Walla Walla began life as a trading post and the first vines were planted here by settlers in the 1850s. The end of the Idaho Gold Rush and Prohibition spelled the end of the wine industry here until the 1970s when pioneering vignerons began to plant vineyards in the valley.

Now, boutique and quality-conscious winemakers have flocked to Walla Walla and some of the best warm-climate red wines in the Pacific Northwest are produced here. Many wineries purchase grapes from the wider Columbia Valley region to blend with the limited quantities of locally grown fruit.

The Walla Walla Valley has a reputation for producing high-quality Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with intense, robust flavors. The sunny, dry climate of the valley is well-suited to these varieties. Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer are the most notable white wines.

Critical Acclaim

97 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A masterclass of finesse and elegance, the 2017 Grenache la Paciencia Vineyard explodes with seductive floral tones that immediately capture your attention. Brilliantly defined dark cherry notions with aromas of rose hip and black spice tones sashay out of the glass. Nuances of dusty leather and wild strawberry float on top of the glass with red floral bouquet aromas. With 13.5% alcohol, this pure, medium-bodied wine is chock-full of flavor, bursting at the seams with a subtle smoky tone that perfectly frames the ripe red fruit. The palate is balanced with a velvety mouthfeel and energizing acidity to age for more than a decade. It displays expertly managed tannins and spiced red fruit that continues to unpack and evolve with mind-blowing complexity. The long-lived finish has mineral tension and offers up notions of wild strawberry, dark cherry skin, newly opened peonies and luxurious and elegant black spice tones—another brilliant bottling from Christophe Baron. The only thing that is disappointing about this wine is that there are only 347 cases for the world to share.

The 2017 Grenache from this terrific label knocks it out of the park with its beautiful wild strawberry fruit intermixed with notions of damp earth, sweet mulch, lavender, flowers, and hints of tapenade. Incredible complex, it’s ethereal and elegant on the palate, with medium-bodied richness and depth, silky tannins, and a great finish. Reminding me of a Vosne Romanée (Domaine Dujac?), it’s going to keep for 10-12 years, probably longer. 

92 Vinous 

Good medium red. Wild aromas of red berries, gunpowder, mocha and white pepper, plus hints of smoked meat and underbrush. Dense, savory, saline and smooth; can't quite match the high-pitched complexity and primary fruit intensity of the Cayuse God Only Knows Grenache but it firm and long, finishing with a solid tannic grip. A touch dusty and meaty on the back end, and less floral than the God Only Knows. Good for this bottling but not special, as it does not have quite the intensity or thrust of the '16. In a distinctly saline Old World style. Still, I raised my score by a point when the wine developed more fruit sweetness with extended aeration.

Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community. 

We work directly with the wineries, distilleries and breweries to maintain a personal relationship with the creators of some of our favorite products.

We want to know their stories and how they produce bottles that fit into our unique collection. We make a point to keep our selection stocked with a wide variety, offering your classic Napa icons to your natural & organic wines.

We like to think of our whiskey and spirit section as more of a library where the rarest of bottles can be found.
