    April 9, 2018 - Light-bodied but intensely flavored with cranberry, red raspberry, herbs and a hint of sour/funk. Light tannins, medium+ acidity.Drinking well now, not sure if it will age further or not.

    October 16, 2016 - Light, spritzy, strawberry-and-cranberry-filled joy of a wine. Hazy and light in color, this has sneaky intensity and the open-knit D&R signature I love. Minerals lurk.

    August 22, 2016 - I splash decanted and re poured to drink next day.
    A lady of a wine. Feminine as Mourvedre gets. And quite the earthy crunchy girl of a wine as well. cloudy, palish in color but has a real distinctive and enjoyable fruit profile with well infused minerals. I like this, but a bit pricey will likely make me not a repeat purchaser.

    August 19, 2016 - I don't get this. Cloudy salmon color. Nose was super funky, like waking up in a barnyard in day old clothes. Palate was spritzy and sour. Did I pop a sour beer by mistake? I just don't get it.

    September 24, 2015 - I like that it is 12.4% alcohol but the flavor profile still does not do it for me. Too much spritz, cherry flavor. I pciked up some barnyard which I was ok with but my wife could not detect it.
