Ducleaux Cellars Raucous 2018

Covert Farms Family Estate Rosé wine
Ducleaux Cellars specializes in Rhône varieties, like Syrah, Viognier, Roussanne and Mourvèdre, in Oregon's Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, which sits fully inside the Walla Walla Valley AVA. There, the heat-conducting, well-draining cobblestones capture the contrarian soul of this garagiste winery. Ducleaux Cellars Raucous 2018 is a testament to the lively and boisterous life that Toby Turlay and Chris Dukelow have created, blending their six children to create a life filled with chaos and love. Comprising 55% Syrah and 45% Mourvèdre, you can expect ripe flavours of plum with boysenberry compote — a dash of savoury fresh herb and a sprinkling of black pepper round out the profile. The tannins are firm yet inviting, with a polished mouthfeel. Decadent yet delicate. Tasted October 2023.
