Dirty and Rowdy Fall 2019 release

FALL RELEASE
"FROM YOUR LOVING CUP"

FRIDAY 8/9 - FRIDAY 8/16

"GIMME LITTLE DRINK
FROM YOUR LOVING CUP"
Buckle up. On Friday, 8/9, we are releasing four of the most exciting Dirty and Rowdy wines from the best vintage we have ever seen.

These 2018 vineyard designates will transport you to a far off universe where alien life forms have been confirmed and bottled. They are magnificent and the result of an otherworldly growing season paired with nerves of steel. And, as it goes with all great journeys, we had to go so far to realize they have been here with us all along.

You will reach for these wines for years to come and they will be your go to when generously shared and poured from your loving cup.

If you aren't familiar with The Rolling Stones "Loving Cup" it is suggested, perhaps even mandatory listening. Check it out on Spotify or on YouTube.

FALL RELEASE WINES

YOUR FALL WINES
Your "Loving Cup" Fall Release will go live on Friday, 8/9 and stay open until Friday 8/16. Quantities of these wines are extremely limited, and we encourage you to place an order early in the release (especially for the 2018 Carignane)!

2018 Rodnick Farm Mourvèdre (formerly Antle Vineyard)
"The man / woman on the mountain, come on up..."

2018 Rosewood Vineyard Old Vine Carignane (say what?!?!)
"The plowman / plow-woman in the valley with the face full of mud"

2018 Mendocino Chenin Blanc
"The person who walks the hillsides in the sweet summer sun"

2018 Evangelho Vineyard Old Vine Mourvèdre
"The person who brings your roses when you aint got none"

"Ohh What a Beautiful Buzz, What a Beautiful Buzz!"

I will say, this could’ve been a great opportunity to link the Phish version of ‘Loving cup’. I’m disappointed Hardy! [tease.gif]

Talk about a wine I never pass on. Hardy & Co run a fantastic program and their wines are always accessible & priced fairly.

Keep it up!!

These are some of the best D&R wines to date! Hardy knocked it out of the park with the 18s.

and yes, thank you Evan :)

Is Gloria from a St Louis show after they won the Stanley Cup? That’s awesome from Phish.

@Joe D Have you tried the D and R ‘18s already? Love to hear about them. I can see asking for the max allocation especially the Evangelho Mourvèdre. Love to hear about that and the Carignane.

Marc, the game became final at set break. Phish opened the second set with Gloria into Loving cup. Love when music and sports collide!

Hi Marc,

Yes, that's right after the blues won... long history of phish & Hockey going back to the Vermont days (Legion of Doom line late 90s). I believe Trey played prep at Taft.

AS for the 18s - yes, I tasted them all out of barrel in March. Some really interesting stuff coming. The carignane is definitely one to go deep on - its got both structure and verve. 100++ year old vines... I remember images of 'lazer beams' racing through my mind as I tasted through many of them - they seem to have this vibrant energy. Don't forget about the PS and Chenin... Simply put - If you like Hardys wines, these are spinal tap turned up to 11!!!

How the Blues adopted the Gloria song is a fun story, some of the Blues players were in a S Philly bar, heard it and it became a thing. Good read if you haven’t already read it.

Thanks for the barrel tasting notes. I’m a fan of the whites as well as the Mourvèdre wines. Skinner and Evangelho especially.

I love how wine intersects with music and hockey in this thread. I’ve seen Trey in a Flyers sweater. I wonder if Hardy is a Sharks fan.

Thanks for the positive vibes! We are fired up for this one.

Last night, John Lockwood of Enfield Wine and I tasted through all the wines but the Carignane (left it at the warehouse, ugh). We were helping each other w/ both of our Fall release tasting notes. It is nuts how special '18 is.

One note: A side by side of Rodnick Farm Mourvèdre (formerly Antle Vineyard) and Evangelho Mourvèdre is a beautiful and geeky mini-exploration of CA Mourvèdre. They are aromatically off the charts and wonderful expressions of very different places.

My team was the Thrashers (RIP) and now mostly the Lightning. I was fired up for the Blues during the playoffs / cup. Worst to first!

Speaking of Phish, my 2018 harvest mantra was "Everything's right, so just hold tight ". I probably said it to myself 50+ times a day.



Also-When the Enfield Fall release comes out, do not pass on the '16 Waterhorse Ridge (aka Jesus Vineyard) Cabernet. [worship.gif] [worship.gif] It is triumphant.

so excited for this release! also Hardy you and John Lockwood may be a CA Superfriends team as far as I'm concerned. Get Morgan there and I'm pretty sure you could just set aside the entire release if wines for the WB board and still sell out.

Thrashers, huh. Georgia connections? We used to live in S Carolina, saw the braves win 2 World Series.
Thanks for the recommendation on the enfield cab.

As a lifelong Braves fan rapidly approaching 50, I wish I’d seen them win 2 World Series, but unfortunately there was just one in my lifetime.

Of course you’re right Mike. Just wishful thinking I guess. I got to take my son to two World Series games when we lived there, the series they won vs Cleveland and the next year vs the Yankees that didn’t turn out as well.

I received the email for the release, and having never purchased D&R wines before (or ever tasted them!), I was curious if anything in this release is a must in terms of representing D&R well. Any advice is welcomed and appreciated!

Shay, haven’t tasted them, being 2018’s I bet they are all awesome. If I absolutely had to pick one it would have to be Rodnick (formerly Antle). Maybe Hardy will jump back in and give his thoughts.

Rodnick and Evangelho. I’m personally also quite curious about the Carignan, but D&R is a Mourvèdre winery, so you have to start there!

Thanks, Shay! You grabbed a great mix. I hope you love the wines.

The release letter will go out at 5AM PST / 8AM EST. I'll probably try to grab a tad more sleep this AM, and then I will be online most of the day and Jenn will be helping out as well.

I have shown the wines to friends and colleagues a few times in the last week and I love how they are showing already.

I just wanted to pop in and say a huge thanks to everyone. [worship.gif] [worship.gif] It has been an exciting AM and I'm working to respond to as many emails as possible.

Quick PSA- We are 50% sold through the Old Vine Carignane and Rodnick Mourvèdre. We expect the Carignane will be the first to go.

I've been on the mailing list for a while but today is the day I finally placed my first order. After reading so many good things about the wines plus the posts from Hardy Wallace, I don't know what took me so long. But at least today I'm happy to have put in an order for a 1/2 case, two of each of the reds. Can't wait for shipping season!

Hardest part is deciding how many of each without going overboard. Though from different regions/vineyards, this reminds me I have to see what I have left from 2011, 2012 and 2013. I really enjoyed those Santa Barbara Highlands and Shake Ridge bottles back in the day.

Jeff- The Rodnick (formerly Antle) this year really reminds me of some of the aromatics from '11 & '13 Santa Barbara Highlands Mourvèdre. It is super intriguing!

Thank you!

My current drinking window thoughts
2018 Chenin Blanc ripping now - 2023 / 2024. Try some this year for sure.

2018 Rosewood Carignane now - 2030 (maybe longer?). For a mid weight wine this has incredible old vine concentration, great tannin / structure, and mouthwatering acidity. I wish we had a lot more as I think people will want to both consume a bunch in the short term (1-2 years) and then bury a bunch in the cellar.

2018 Evangelho Mourvèdre
potentially indestructible... Now - ?????? Even if this wine is popped early, there is so much wow, pleasure, and energy here. That being said, I think this will mature at a geological pace. I hope to leave a bunch of the '18s for my kids (3yrs and 8mos) Try one this year and try to stash the rest.

2018 Rodnick Farm Mourvèdre

Now - 2028 - This is the wine people will have a hard time keeping their hands off. It is probably an 8-10yr wine (it will not be as long lived as the Evangelho and I feel like it is a tad more delicate than previous vintages of Antle), but I doubt many will remain that long. In the 3x I have had it opened with all the other fall release wines, it was the first one empty, and the one most talked about. It shows so much spirit right now- I think this is a great wine to introduce people to D&R.

Thanks again for all the support!

The only 1.5Ls this year are for 2018 Cuvée Hervé (coming out before the holidays). We had so many lots to bottle this year that we would have needed an additional bottling day to tackle the 1.5Ls.

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.

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.

Sprang for a mixed case, 3 each of the four reds. Can't go wrong with D&R in my experience.
