FINAL GOODBYE FROM ONE OF CALIFORIA'S MOST INFLUENTIAL MODERN WINERIES

The boldest bruiser of the bunch and the oddball. Stylistically the most like Bandol at 15.2% ABV. 100% Mourvèdre from 100-year-old vines, own-rooted / ungrafted, farmed organically, without irrigation, and planted on limestone and granite soils. This is the same plot as the Enz Old Vineyard, but harvested four weeks later when the vines have lost their leaves.

Dirty & Rowdy will shut its doors this year after a ten year stretch producing arguably the most elegant single Mourvedre-based wines on the planet, and introducing the relatively obscure grape variety to thousands of wine lovers who wouldn't have discovered it otherwise. The styles here are lower alcohol, slightly carbonic, and natural-leaning, but in a cleaner, New World way. The label garnered a cult following over the last decade with an enthusiastic wine club and this counterculture New World style  As we move into the fall, these styles are particularly appropriate for the cooler evenings. This is the rest of what's available retail in Texas, so if this is your fancy, take a crack at them because they aren't coming back! Share a bottle and tell your friends it's a piece of New Wave California's history.
