This might be one of my favorite wines ever. Last bottle and it's probably the right time. But there is so much on the nose, strawberry, spicy and front of the palate that makes me think and smile. Baby back ribs, rice & beans. Wish I had 1 more for 2024, but it wouldn't be as good. I love be this wine.

Second time trying this bottling and the extra year definitely helped. Perfect serving temperature by using the Kelvin K2 Wine Thermometer, really made a big difference. Light to medium garnet red. Beautiful nose with notes of lilacs, spices, red berries and twigs. Medium tannins (5/10) and solid acidity. Light plus to medium bodied. Crushed floral notes on the palate with a touch of earthiness, dried cherries, raspberries, herbal notes, strawberries and rhubarb. Long finish. Drink till 2022.

This was so great. Candied cherries and red apple skins. A little funk, but not too much. Just the right combo. Might be my favorite from the D&R crew that I've had.

Lived up to its hype. Juicy, but not flabby. Smoked cherries with a dash of maraschino syrup. Delicious.

Dirty and Rowdy does it again! The most recent vintage of one of my favorite chuggable, juicy table reds. Southern France by way of California, vin de soif style. Best with a slight chill, IMO. Ripe bing cherry and strawberry, rhubarb, red apple skin, anise, white pepper, and a bit of funky crushed gravel minerality. A touch of VA but it adds more than it detracts; just enough to provide a bit of aromatic lift. Medium (+) acid, medium (-) body, medium (-) fine tannic character. Killer with a Blue Door Pub Blucy bacon burger. Great wine for beef while still being nimble and light on its feet. I love Dirty and Rowdy; great wines from some genuine, passionate people.
