    September 16, 2020 - I generally love the Dirty and Rowdy lineup but this one is a little over the top...at least they warned us! This is a bit too big and too jammy and needs a little more of a feral edge to offset that...the acidity is there but it can't quite balance all the muchness. Don't know if this winemaking style works as well with super-ripe fruit but it is certainly an interesting experiment.

    September 4, 2020 - Decanted. Now 3h later. Aromas of plums, blueberries, and blackberries be a bit of herbs and some alcoholic heat. Ripe blackberries and just ripe blueberries on palate w some herbs and minerals. Full bodied w mild - moderate tannins w decent acids. Decent acids now but better when first opened from wine fridge. Some alcoholic heat on finish. Mostly carries it's 15.2% alcohol well but better with a chill that is better balanced with the acids being more prominent and the alcohol less noticeable. Good but ultimately, too big for me and not my style.

    August 31, 2020 - As others have said, despite its 15.2% alcohol, this is still a relatively light and deep wine. Lots of up front plum and dark cherry along with a really earthy component. Delicious.

    August 21, 2020 - delicious!

    definitely a difference between this and the regular Enz in the darker fruit profile but the fresh acid zip is definitely still present to balance out. yet another win from Hardy!
