Expected:

2019 Barbera

Would love to see a barbera! Especially with the bedrock barbera in the last release, would be an interesting side by side

Agreed. Hardy and Barbera sounds like a good combo based on his winemaking style.

Also would love to see Barbera.
Opened a 2018 Mourvedre Familiar the other day.
Our guests loved it, was great during the hot weather.

Just re-looked at my emails, and the email for the supplemental release this year implies that the 2017 Shake Ridge Barbera was 100%...maybe I missed something in Morgan’s notes here around the release

I just keyword searched Barbera and I only saw the latest Fall release that had Barbera as part of the blend.

There is indeed a 100% Barbera that Bedrock did in 2017 from Shake Ridge, that was part of the 'supplemental' spring release this year. It is delicious. I would love to see a Barbera from Dirty and Rowdy.

I thought Bedrock ripped out its Barbera and replanted it to other varieties...

Turley also made a 2018 Sleeper Ranch Barbera. Haven’t opened just yet. Will try it next to the Bedrock and D&R if available

Translated: Bedrock sourced Barbera was part of a D&R Blended wine but not bottled separately. Did I get that right Tom?

Who’s on 2nd?
I was only talking about Bedrock (Morgan). I had missed the supplemental release email earlier this year, so thought Morgan had only released a wine with Barbera as a blend. I was wrong from the email:
2017 Shake Ridge Ranch Barbera, Amador County
This was our first vintage working with a few rows of Barbera from Ann Kraemer’s magical Shake Ridge Ranch in Amador County. I have always loved Barbera for its forthright beauty and fruit profile, and it tends to do very well in Amador County as the warm daytime temperatures tends to ameliorate the rambunctious and biting acidity the variety is so naturally blessed with. Since it was our first year, we simply destemmed the fruit into a 1 ton fermenter, let it ferment to dryness and pressed it to a couple neutral large puncheons— the overall hope being just to get a read on the fruit in its most basic form. Well, turns out this ain’t no basic, ahem, Barbera…. The whole crew loved the wine so much that we bottled up a barrel as much for personal consumption as anything else. $30

Hardy, I would love to hear details on the site within Brousseau, viticulture, and winemaking for the Brousseau Syrah!
Brosseau is awesome. It is a mix of limestone, granite, and volcanic soils at about 1600FT elevation right by the entrance to Pinnacles National Park. The vineyard is organically farmed and our block is Syrah from some suitcase cuttings taken from a place that rhymes with PHermitage. These vines produce tiny berries that have a ton of structure even at moderate (12.5%) alcohol.

On the winemaking side, the Syrah is 100% whole cluster, gently pumped over or punched down 2x a day. The wine is barreled down to a mix of old puncheons and old barrels. It is unfiltered and unfined.

We've worked with Brosseau Syrah and Grenache since 16 as they make up the S&G of our MSG wine. 19 is the first year we've bottled some Syrah on its own.

In terms of power, it is the most intense red wine in the Fall lineup - Zin is the lightest. The Zin is the weight of our Especial Wines.

The aromatics on the the Fall wines are through the roof.

I'm also a newbie when it comes to D&R. If not for berserkers, I would have no idea. They seem to be in the vein of Carlisle and Bedrock. Is that right? If I was going to hunt down some of their wines to see what they are about, what should I look for?

Personally I think any of his Mourvèdre based wines are special. Shake Ridge Ranch, Outer Limits, Old Vine Enz.

I'm also a newbie when it comes to D&R. If not for berserkers, I would have no idea. They seem to be in the vein of Carlisle and Bedrock. Is that right? If I was going to hunt down some of their wines to see what they are about, what should I look for?
Personally I think any of his Mourvèdre based wines are special. Shake Ridge Ranch, Outer Limits, Old Vine Enz.
Definitely the Mourvèdre, I’d recommend Shake Ridge of Evangelho to start if you can find it, or even more simply the Familiar tp get an idea of style.

Conceptually similar to Bedrock and Carlisle in terms of vineyard sources, etc., but Hardy’s wine style differs for me. Low alcohol, seriously bright fruit, solid acid. Absolutely gulpable wines that reward patience, even though that’s generally pretty hard to practice.

I think you nailed it with the bright fruit and (crackling) acidity. Haven’t had much like it. Unique winemaking.

Personally? No, they are not in the same vein at all other than they are cool, small producer Cali wines that do things off the beaten track.


To me, D&R is pictured in my head as this: "The British eccentric actor Bill Nighly is also secretly a Cru Beaujolais vintner. 'I enjoy a good lip smacking.' as he puts it. While Bill enjoys the theatre and London, his work in LA means he's spending more and more time there. He decides to make wine in California as well. While the wine should conform to his views on exceptional Cru beaujolais (a wine that people that say they "know wine" as they drink their Opus One and Silver Oak, scoff at, while those that truly understand good wine grin and say little to keep their collective secret safe and prices down) it should also speak to the soul of California. 'Wicked' his new surfer-bro neighbor exclaims when told of the venture, 'Radical' surfer-bro continues when told that Bill will be looking to use forgotten, disused or off the beaten track vineyards. 'My good man,' Bill retorts 'it is neither evil nor extreme in it's thesis, though in using vernacular that you will understand, it will be 'Totally Tubular'.

They are lip smacking, they are light on their feet, even when weighty. They are never ponderous. They are bright. They are absolutely unique. Also maybe the best Turkey wine in existence.

Wait...is this live? I see the wines on the website but it says I have no allocation...which doesn't make sense to me given multiple purchases in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Two tiered release. Believe general release is midweek.

Thanks! Yes, my email notes Thursday. I suppose to need to start buying more to make the first tier. One of the few styles of wine (other than Napa Cab) that both my wife and I both enjoy so it doesn't last long in our house.

Oh yes, I've had about a dozen bottles over the last year. Starting to unwind a little, it will be rewarded with patience. The last glass of every bottle was the best. If you decide to open one now, maybe double decant for bunch of hours.
