    November 20, 2020 - Red fruited nose, some yeast, flavors are of red cherry primarily, some black cherry, also ever do slightly yeasty, mildly tannic, mild acidity with a medium length finish, this is quite nice and a great everyday drinker

    November 4, 2020 - Fun wine. Beaujolais version of Mourvèdre. Funky!

    August 16, 2020 - This wine is fantastic, just what I want on a Sunday night. It comes with a slight haze, but already on the nose, a cleaner wine than most of the D&Rs I’ve had to date.

    This is packed full of juicy raspberry, red plum and redcurrant. There’s low natural alcohol and really soft acids. It’s not an enamel peeling wine at all. Really the most balanced D&R from last year’s release. This wine is delicious and worth seeking out - the kind of wine you look down and the bottle is empty

    April 20, 2020 - Pulled the last one of these as the 2019 shipment just arrived and it saw in the notes that these are for drinking in the short term. This bottle was an absolute pleasure full of round juicy fruit. Lighter and more refreshing than most reds, like a step above a claret. Although it was full of raspberries and berries and easy drinking, I felt it had lost some of the zip and fresh strawberry notes of the bottle I had last year. I do believe these show at their best early and will start on the 2019s as soon as they settle after shipping. But nothing wrong with these right now either!
