If you find a bottle of this wine lingering in a wine shop, buy it. Recommended (especially at this price) (90).
It is mouth-coating and smooth, even elegant, while keeping a bright food-friendly acidity. Highly Recommended (91).
The AVA name “Red Mountain” sells a lot of wine in steakhouses. I learned this from master sommelier...
Hardy Wallace gave himself one year to sell through his first significant release of wines from Dirty and Rowdy Family Winery in late August, 2012. It would be work, hand selling, lots of travel. If they could sell out in a year, it would be a sign that maybe this small California winery could have a future.
It’s true. Sleepy Paso Robles wine country has an alter ego — haven for vagabonds, virtuosos, and visionaries. A maverick region, with winemakers and wines to match.
