The No Girls Tempranillo is an absolute beauty in 2017. This immediately impresses as it bursts open with incredible aromatics of black cherry liqueur, wild strawberries and blueberries, followed by layers of thyme, smoked green olive, scorched earth and cured meats that all meld together beautifully in the glass. This is brimming with energy and life as it goes on to display excellent structure, with soft, silky tannins that are framed by a beautiful touch of acidity, which adds wonderful freshness. It continues to impress as it displays excellent concentration and focus, with flavors of ripe blackberries, cherries, ripe strawberries along with olives, bitter chocolate and earth that all emerge from its sappy core which persists through the gorgeous finish. This is an absolutely fabulous Tempranillo to approach now or anytime over the course of the next decade.
