Real Wine, No Tricks

No Girls Wines was originally founded as a collaboration between Cayuse Vineyards' owner and vigneron Christophe Baron and general manager Trevor Dorland. As the project has evolved, we are very pleased to include other Cayuse employees including Cayuse assistant vigneronne Elizabeth Bourcier and controller Nancy Nestler.

These team members prove that No Girls represents an appreciative nod to one of Walla Walla's richest and most colorful eras—it doesn't literally mean no girls. It means that by creating wines true to our valley, we're celebrating our history.

“Giving
No Girls
a personality all it's own”

Walla Walla Bordello The grapes come from the Cayuse La Paciencia vineyard, which means patience—appropriate since the project was ten years in the making. The vines are tightly spaced and planted on an angle, giving No Girls a personality all its own.

These are serious wines, not Cayuse seconds. They're focused and pure—food friendly creations that eloquently express the rocky terroir from which they spring.

Real Wine. No Tricks.

Accolades

Wine Spectator called the 2009 No Girls vintage "…Some of the best Washington wines ever rated" by the magazine! Here's what Harvey Steiman had to say:

2009 No Girls Syrah “Juicy plum, blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors leap from the glass, balancing a mass of flavor on a remarkably open texture with amazing finesse. Displays tremendous focus, depth and charm, offering hints of exotic spice and black olive. Drink now through 2025.” 98 points.

2009 No Girls Grenache “Open-textured and expressive, dripping with licorice and black olive overtones to the dark berry fruit, coming together seamlessly on the gloriously expressive finish. Drink now through 2018.” 95 points.

Here’s what David Schildknecht of The Wine Advocate had to say about our 2009 vintage:

2009 No Girls Grenache "It’s as though one has crunched down to the strawberry seeds and taken a sharper hit of mint and cinnamon as well as white pepper and toasted nuts, causing the wine to deliver a delightful, energetic ping as part of a long, infectiously juicy finish." 92 points.

2009 No Girls Syrah "Scents of red meat, basil, hibiscus, cherry, and blueberry along with a whiff of wood smoke establish the themes for a satisfyingly juicy and expansive but in no way heavy palate presence. A bite of black pepper, invigorating crunch of berry seeds, and saliva-inducing salinity add to the fruity exuberance and savory meatiness of a memorably long, luscious finish." 93 points.

Steven Tanzer of the International Wine Cellar also wrote:

2009 No Girls Grenache "...Wonderfully sweet and seamless but distinctly wild, with a hint of black olive adding interest to the dark raspberry, mocha, game and mineral flavors. Finishes with very suave tannins and a distinctly salty quality." 91 points.

2009 No Girls Syrah "Good red color grew deeper with air. Rather saline, rocky aromas of blueberry, smoked meat and black olive, plus a whiff of molasses. Supple, musky and intense, with very good peppery, spicy lift to the dark berry flavors..." 92(+?) points.
