Based on the name and the timing of the release is this a sparking wine, and is it a new bottling ? I cant recall hearing of it before.
Happy to be corrected but I expected this is a special namesake bottling (magnuming?) in honour of Hardy's second child.
My understanding as well based on some back and forth with Hardy when he was bottling and posted it on Instagram. Similar to what he did with the Maple St. petite sirah.
Correct. 2018 Cuvée Hervé is the wine I made for my son. He was born last Dec. We will probably release it before the holidays this year or before the holidays year. It is 100% Mourvèdre-- Our best barrel of '18 Rosewood Old Vines Mourvèdre (before they were pulled up), our best barrel of Evangelho Old Vine Mourvèdre, and our best barrel of Enz Old Vine Mourvèdre. He's a lucky kid to be born in '18.

Again- Thanks to everyone for their support. This has been a wonderful day.

I went in for a second order out of FOMO. No self control here at all.

I had the good fortune to get to taste many of the D&R 2018s 2 weeks ago. All of them were amazing! The Rodnick and Cuvée Herve were highlights for us.
Didn’t get to the Carignan or Evanghelo because we ran out of time but still buying these.

We enjoy the opportunity to support a good man who is so passionate about his craft!

Brian- Thanks so much! It was a pleasure having you all at the house- and thanks so much for the package. That was super kind!
------------
For those that are contemplating- We are down to 60 bottles of Carignane and 1/2 - 2/3 of the way through everything else

We sent out this video this AM to the list for everyone to check out how stunning the Rodnick Farm Vineyard is... I love this vineyard for Mourvèdre...

Just placed my first order. First tasted with Hardy at FMIII's house during Falltacular and loved all the wine. Expect this will be a nice addition to my cellar.

Thanks Christian. In about 4-5 years I look forward to a 10yr Antle / Rodnick vertical. It is such great site for Mourvèdre.

In for a mixed case.

Always great stuff.

Wish i could buy more (of course I should have no trouble getting Joe and Bobby open up their blend for me to sample...)

Out of space but in for 2+2 Mourvèdres. Tasted the D&R Mourvèdres at Hospice du Rhône last year and decided I need to make room for these in my cellar.

Rodnick Mourvèdre
-We are down to 5 cases of Rodnick Mourvèdre

Evangelho Old Vines Mourvèdre

(by the way, I'm drinking a '18 Familiar Blanc right now and it is sooo nice, dynamic floral nose, super lush with the acid and stone to keep it in check - looking forward to the Chenin!)

I placed an order a couple of hours ago. I sent you a note to the return e mail address. Hope it arrived.

I tasted my first D and R at the annual Di Fara's offline. Someone out there likes you. [cheers.gif]

I'm a fan of their Chenin Blanc. Looking forward trying other offerings from D&R.

Mine arrived at storage earlier this week so I swung by to move them to the locker (along with far too much other wine!) and pick up one of each from this release to bring home and try out.

Coravin'd a glass of the Chenin Blanc while cooking / eating, and then a glass of the Rodnick (formerly Antle) Mourvedre afterward.

Chenin Blanc. Initial thoughts were a bit disappointing, honestly didn't particularly enjoy my first couple of sips (at cellar temp). A mid-palate bitter note was dominant, very little fruit, strong minerality (but still overwhelmed by the bitter note). I chilled the glass down a bit and let it sit while I finished cooking -- shrimp tacos (cooked in butter and garlic). With the combo of the food, slight temp reduction, and time, I enjoyed the wine far more. This glass was open for an hour and change and the bitterness had receeded substantially by the end, allowing me to notice some pear and significant flint/granite, although still simpler than I was expecting. I didn't love it, but I was at least enjoying it by the end. I'm surprised Hardy's recent email notes suggest no decant on this one as it did improve a lot with time, and CT notes on prior vintages suggest something similar happened then.

Rodnick Mourvedre. Damn. This is a beautiful wine. Floral nose. Raspberries, bay leaves, a little white pepper, and some lighter plum. Great acidity. I loved this.

Thanks for the posting, Joe. Just a word of caution though about the Coravin: it doesn’t work on the synthetic closures that are now used on many of the D&R wines (don’t know about the particular 2 bottles you mentioned). That is, the Coravin won’t do anything bad to the wine, but the synthetic closure will not re-seal the way a traditional cork would. So if you lay those bottles down on their sides, the wine may leak through the hole in the cork. I also wouldn’t recommend waiting too many days before revisiting those bottles, given the hole in the cork.

That said, I’ve learned that the D&R wines tend to show great after a day (or even two) of air, so I’d just suggest drinking those bottles over the next 2-3 days instead of treating them as you might another Coravined bottle.

It's interesting, I had a similar discussion regarding the diam closures on Goodfellow bottles recently. Those really resist the needle so I'm concerned about breakage but they actually sealed back up better than any cork I've seen! Usually I'll get a drop on the cork when laying it back down before it finally seals, the diams were completely clean. Just checked the Dirty and Rowdy bottles from last night though and yep, leakage. I'll treat them as opened. So, some variation based on the specific synthetic cork. I do leave the bottles upright usually for an hour or so before laying then back down.

Not sure about this, but I think Diams generally reseal with the Coravin, while Nomacorcs do not.

We popped a Carignane on the weekend. I would normally wait for the wines to get over travel shock but just couldn't resist.

The DR signature is still there but this is a really different wine for me. Quite dark and brooding, a bit more of a "traditional" body if I could put it that way. There's a beautiful purity of fruit within that structure though and the finish is long and savoury. A fantastic food wine, and a hell of an achievement with this varietal.
