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.

Not a towering example of complexity, but intensely satisfying as the sum is greater than the whole of its parts with bright red fruitiness, some herbal savoriness, and a lip-smacking tartness on the finish.

Wow. Light, well-fruited and structured but accessible. Lighter than some D&R SVD's but not lacking complexity in any way.

Ok. More like it. Nice minerals. Tart. Color shows a richness that doesn't come up in flavor. Lighter but thought provoking. At 2014 of course it's young but I believe the new generation wine makers roll like that. Cups your palate. Not fruit forward. Also 12.2 percent alcohol the glass surprisingly shows legs. Anyway. Enjoy! Wait as I drink berries are showing their flair.
