Dropout Beauty School

Big beautiful dirty-baby-diaper blasts out from under the cork, briefly suffocating the tar, lavish grapefruit and pine resin which can’t be held down. Raw meatball and clear, firm, good-natured conifer-tinged Dr. Pepper bring the dank muddy note up a few notches, making the world an open book for tasting.

In the mouth, perfect Bing cherry, not playing against any of your ‘old vine’ heartstrings of over-done compromises. Perfectly luscious through-and-through, bringing the spirit of Bandol alive in only the way Contra Costa County can. A silky fluid injection of field & fruit heroin, throbbingly inspired all the way to where the acid and alcohol tickle you gently and laughingly, inarguably cramming Maraschino-iced tannins into the roof of your mouth. Tonight, this is the world’s most perfect Mourvedre.
