Dirty & Rowdy

Alder Springs Viognier 2016

My love for Dirty and Rowdy’s wines continues to grow deeper and deeper. Beautiful floral nose with hints of honeydew melon, river pebbles, lemon zest. My nose perks up towards the end with the smell of white peaches. A lush, velvety texture. bright acidic finish that brings a rush of apricots, Bosc pears, wood, and Carmel apples. Terrific with roast chicken — 14 days ago

I’ve still yet to try one of their wines but they have quite the devoted following.

@Shay A The founders Hardy and Matt have a pretty cool story behind how they started D & R. I have yet to be disappointed by any of their work. The vast majority of their wines have a production of sub 150 cases and all are a very reasonably priced for the quality that you are getting. A nice change of pace from the Cali wines I am used to. Their fall release should have a lot of fun wines in it

Alder Ridge Grenache Rose 2017

Light salmon pink in color. Strawberry and floral notes in nose. Strawberry, cherry and lemon flavors with length, minerality, light astringency on front center of tongue on finish. Dry to off-dry. 850 cases made. Don't overchill this one. Flavors are not so complex, but well structured and integrated. Aperitif or food wine — 21 days ago

Apricot, wet slate, tight finish. Great tension. So good now, but will age gracefully. Amazing with Alder wood smoke roasted King Salmon, basted with garlic/shallot/lemon thyme butter. — 2 days ago

Pax

The Emerald Pool Alder Springs Vineyard Syrah 2006

Comes from a single block of the Alder Springs vineyard. 16% alcohol! Vinous called it “feral” which is a pretty accurate descriptor. The most concentrated Pax I have ever had. Massive black fruit, pepper, raw bacon and dark molasses. Very complex with a 30 second finish. Awesome stuff! Especially for $40 from the Old and Rare section of K&L. Glad I bought a couple. Loads of time left. — 22 days ago

Alder Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Lemon and minerals with just a dash of wood, nice tartness and elegance. It fills out with air and becomes a lot like a baby Ramonet. — a month ago
