Dirty & Rowdy

Unfamiliar Mourvedre 2017

Marc Stubblefield

Sow's ear -> silk purse. Lemons -> lemonade. Ashes -> Phoenix. Or something like that. Whatever the crappy input was, the output is juicy glou-glou American vin du soif by way of Beaujolais with a sidecar of natty Southwest France. I want this all the time. (Though not at the expense of declassing all the single vineyard fruit that's in here.) Even better when you're glamping in Baja. @Hardy Wallace — 10 days ago

Love the description almost as much as I love the wines these guys put out. Saw where the next unfamiliar was bottled yesterday and has some petit sirah and zin thrown into the mix. Should be a really fun one. Cheers!

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2014

This is the 6th or 7th batter in your line-up who consistently comes through with the game winning hit more than the big boppers. Youthful opulence and grainy cherry tar. It’s herbaceous and curvaceous and I’m pairing it with mushroom ravioli and “The Staircase” on Netflix tonight...the Betta fish got shutout. — 7 days ago

As usual Bill is cutting edge and poetic - bravo


Be careful with that Staircase.

Just as fascinated by this as I was a year ago when I first tasted it. Wild, pungent, cloudy, sour, raw, and definitely dirty and rowdy. — 17 days ago

Sans Liege

The Adversary Mourvedre

Gorgeous with dry herbs and licorice aromas incorporating lush ripe black cherry and dried plum on the palate. Integrated tannins with hints of sweet tobacco leaving behind copious amounts of black fruit and a pleasing silky smooth finish - dynamite — 18 hours ago

Delicate yet yeasty. Tart cherry and a very herbaceous finish. — 12 hours ago

Fulldraw Vineyard

Honey Bunny Paso Robles Syrah Mourvedre 2016

Iowa native, @Connor McMahon , shared his new Fulldraw lineup with a group of us in Des Moines tonight. This Syrah was big and meaty. It was very full-bodied on the palate with blueberry fruit and leather. Very nice. — 2 days ago

@Connor McMahon is doing some great things, and this is an exceptional inaugural vintage for Fulldraw! I found this very well rounded.
