    August 12, 2019 - Wow, can a light-bodied, quaffable Red get much better than this? I’m not sure. This has so much going on - crisp rose hips and raspberry fruit, underpinned by raspberry jam and darker, funkier Mourvèdre fruit, funky clods of rich, minerally wet earth, black pepper, and a little prickle of spice (brett?) at the back of the throat. Gentle tannins that are nevertheless persistent and giving it enough structure. It’s a shame this was my only bottle - I’d love to see where this lands in 10 years.

    May 26, 2019 - Initially raspberry jolly ranchers but after double decanting, this was ripe raspberries and wet stone with thyme and rosemary greenery in the background.

    Paired with grilled steaks at the lake, this was another D & R crowd pleaser.

    April 21, 2019 - My previous bottle of this was great. This one was not. If was not horribly off - if the previous bottle (and other d&R's) hadn't been so good I would just have assumed it was just a too-funky-for-me natural wine - but it was just too dirty/reductive/whatever to really enjoy.

    Didn't keep a detailed TN, but was very pleasant. Light and very quaffable, if maybe not quite up to the 2015.

    September 2, 2018 - Clean fruit with little structure. A tad sweet for my taste.
