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.

Juicy and just a little bit feral, and a fun addition to our Thanksgiving lineup. Lucky that this didn't get much attention early in the evening, so we were able to come to it with a few hours open, which helps add depth and complexity here

Wild strawberry jam with some earth. Something about it reminds me of Ridge Zin, in a very nice way.

First time trying Dirty and Rowdy, very excited!! Very interesting right off the bat, no staining on the cork at all and and such an interesting color out of the bottle. Very light red with brownish hues. Nose was full of floral notes and a little nuttiness. Bright and crisp acidity, so elegant. Slight minerality near the finish, which is long and lingering. Moderate tannins (6/10) that grips starting mid to end palate. Very impressed and so happy we got on their allocation list. Thanks Hardy, Kate, Matt and Amy!!! You guys are doing great things out there! Drink till 2028.

Cherry, cranberry, cassis. Vanilla and tart red fruits on the palate. Light tannins, high acid, short finish. Meh...

Candied cherries, but not flabby at all. The Sasquatch is my friend.

I always want to bathe in the aromas of this wine. Opened two nights ago and it's still kicking. Fruit has given way to earth and savoriness. @Hardy Wallace can do no wrong.

Super bright. Fresh, with a medicinal/stony vein running through.

Juicy and fun and expansive after the second hour open. Not the right match for dinner, but that's ok, we finished it after.
