Unicorn Wine: D&R Legends...Where to find?

#1 Post by R_Gilbane » October 1st, 2019, 5:37 pm

OK so I'm not quite sure if this wine is an urban legend or the real deal. I saw it as a purchase option at the last Dirty & Rowdy release but was subsequently told that it wasn't available.....supposedly made from the old vine (something like 110+ years old) mouvedre and carignan. Can someone/anyone speak to the existence of this elixir?

“The Legends” was not an official wine name. Glenn said “The Legends” in the release thread, but it’s not in any wine name.

David, appreciate the response but I believe it is in fact a real wine. OR at least someone has done a very convincing photoshop job on CellarTracker.
the legends_aka this is a real wine and David is 100 percent wrong.PNG

AD NORTHUP! Step into my chamber of secrets my good sir! I can tell you are for REALZ as you list the '94 ESJ SAUVAGES as one of your engorged wines of the year. How much MacD do you want? I also have the super limited MacDonald BOTA bag that was made in 2011 that I'm willing to let you drink out of as long as you don't go all heavy petting on a brother. DM me for details.

I also had an allocation. I believe purchasing a certain amount of DR wines last year offered access to it. I cannot remember how much.

I was offered this but think I missed out. I think I thought it was included in the mixed case and neglected to order the separate allocation. Stuff happens on vacation.

Will trade you as much legends as you want on a one-for-one basis for Overnoy-Houillon wines.

Mr Lewis: Given the comparative scarcity of this D&R wine, that would not be a fair trade.

FWIW Legends only ships with Grey Wax.

Well, it just got a 99 on Cellartracker! (still awaiting my bottles, but I am 100 on the Legends no matter what)

Seriously, eagerly awaiting my fall shipment, and glad the recent fires weren't worse.

Damn Brad, LUCKY DUCK! Sounds like this wine is so good it's best to only consume it in micro-doses. Anything larger would cause you to lose your mind.

This is an interesting wine but there is no way this is close to upper 90s, even with my inflated rating. [wink.gif]
