Bright, juicy, cloudy California Mourvèdre (100%) from the Dirty & Rowdy Family. Described as a “snapshot of California Mourvèdre”, the 2018 Familiar comes from vineyards in 5 different appellations: Antle Vineyard in Monterey county, Evangelho Vineyard in Contra Costa (120+ years old vines), Rosewood Vineyard in Mendocino (90+ years old vines), Shake Ridge Ranch in Amador county and Skinner Stoney Creek and Skinner White Oak Flats in El Dorado County. Strawberries, right amount of funk. Delicious — a year ago
Wow! Just Wow! Pretty light purple and explosive lilac, red berry, Asian incense and cranberry. Lighter in the mouth than expected...12.7 ABV doesn’t “do” jammy. But..quaffable and poundable... amazing energy and life as the savory/fruit notes wash over your tastebuds and a long, smiley face finish. These wines require a reimagination of table wine....particularly California table wine... Well done, Hardy! — 6 months ago
We really wanted to love this, but alas, we think that around 2012 was when Caymus decided to focus on an à la carte presentation, which makes for quite a shallow encounter.
They have tapped into the logic of the Skinner box operant conditioning. We humanoids press a lever (in this case pull a cork), and a one-night-stand promptly arrives in our glass. Us peeps tend to follow the crowd (I present myself as exhibit A), but when you taste this, it makes a splash, but flatters to deceive.
