Speechless. Best D&R I've had to date. Really pretty expressive red fruit (strawberries), some gorgeous minerality and herbs, but when this was paired with a caco e pepe pasta dish, it was like candy poprocks mixed with fruit dancing on your palate. Could not stop drinking this wine!!!

Grippy. Still young, but also plenty of whole cluster fun evident here. Great minerality

This is mourvèdre, textbook in a more balanced style than you expect from the new world.

At first, this was very linear and acid driven with a bit of subtle red fruit. Ended up letting it sit for nearly 3 hours: after it had really rounded out, the fruit became more distinct and subtle earthy tones emerged. Quite a lovely wine.

2015. Youthful and exuberant (obviously). Lean, gentle and fruit driven. This is playful and mature American winemaking. 👍🏽

Classic D&R. Bright, crunchy red fruit and fresh herbs. Highly drinkable but also complex.
