Crazy good, would have never guessed that this was from Paso. Super balanced and elegant.

Abundant dark fruit and no oxidation, even in its 9th year. However, I do suggest drinking it soon.

In a lovely spot now. Tannins have faded and what's left is a medium bodied grenache full of silk and elegance.

Paso Robles Grenache Blend, Grenache more

I had this preceding an '09 Rasteau, which was superior for nearly half the price.

The digger is a big juice bomb. It's enjoyable yes and self-indulgent, but not an interesting wine. The nose is fruit. The body is fruit. The finish is fruit. And by fruit I mean big, black berries squeezed twice.

All that said, we paired with a gamey duck dish and it was excellent

Popped and poured, drank over 2 nights. This is still drinking very well. Solid dark fruit profile, but the wine's calling card was texture. Smooth drink with a pleasing, long finish.

Sharply cut with bright and crunchy red fruits on a sea of minerality. Fairly intense right now, this is well suited to similarly bright foods... Would be killer with ceviche.

Gorgeous expression of nicely-balanced, yet richly flavored CdP GSM + Carignon blend, showing wild fruits, red berries and some vanilla on the long, clean finish. Terrific winemaking.

Great example of a California CdP blend, and typical of Denner, shows terrific winemaking, richness and clarity of varietals in the blend, intensity of flavors, and well-balanced all the way through the medium+ finish. Mouthwatering acidity and a touch of tannin predict a 10-year aging window.

Please don't spread the word, as Denner doesn't produce enough of this to go around! Other notes reflect the character of this dense-but-delicate-but-rich unusual single-varietal Carignon from Paso Robles. Expecting a rustic, Languedoc or Gascogne-styled result, we were totally blown away by the quality, balance, taste and flavors in this big surprise from Denner. Dark purple-black in glass, a glint of ruby on the rim, aromas of black and red fruits on the nose, and literally explosive in the clean and intense flavors of black and red currant, plum, blackberry and wild berry from the get-go. Sounds sticky, but it's not; just in perfect balance with a hint of silky tannin, notes of vanilla, and a muted acidity in the background to hold everything in balance. Terrific now, and likely good for another 10 years or so. Super-long finish, and due to its balance, very food-friendly, particulary with grilled pork chops, probably a hanger steak or filet, or red-sauce pasta dishes. Run, don't walk if you can find some.

Precision is the word that comes to mind.

While the wine is definitely "new world" there are some great old world, earth attributes to the wine: notes of earth and herbs collide with the dense, pure fruit of this wine. Everything feels like it has a measure and timing. This wine is very well made.

Notes of black fruit on the nose, perfectly ripe blackberry, dark plums, vanilla, lilac, and evening sage. Full bodied on the palette, yielding clear and concise layers of earth, fat, pepper, and brambly fruit.

Wonderful fruity nose. Tastes of tropical fruits, peach & apricot. Got better as we drank through the bottle. The flavors really came out as it opened up and warmed up. Suggest decanting it for a while before serving.

Light straw color. Floral nose of honeysuckle. Tastes of pear and peach with a dash of minerality. Very smooth texture with a bit of viscosity. Let it warm more to cellar temp for best enjoyment.

Well structured, but with a bit more finesse than most Paso wines. 95% Syrah with a touch of Roussane and Viognier to soften.

Color: dark ruby core -> medium-deep ruby rim. Bouquet of raspberries, cherries, cassis, a little iodine and some sweet vanilla. Palate took about an hour to come around and at that point presented a smooth, lithe, soft expression of Paso Cabernet. Very red-fruited to my palate with distinct gingerbread overtones. Quite lovely and a stellar first effort for this particular bottling. Tannins present but soft, appropriate acidity, good midpalate weight and nice finish; think of this as your classic Goldilocks wine: everything is 'just right.' While this has great balance and IMO will last several years longer, there is no need to defer enjoyment since I think this is about as complex as it's going to get.

C enjoyed more than I did. Bright fruit but a bit heavy and a touch of alcohol coming through. Amazing to compare to the Dirty and Rowdy Mourvedre from a couple weeks ago (which I greatly prefer). How can that be the same grape?!?! ha!

Juicy, dark fruit on the nose along with a little creme brulee. Hint of ripe blueberries on the mid-palate. Pepper and maybe some grilled meat on the palate. Still tannic. Probably a little young, but this wine is going to be really outstanding in 2 to 4 years.

Bottle showed some seepage at the cork and had a little "funk", but not off putting. Really enjoyed this with sausage and peppers. Bottle was opened yesterday, and today, it really showed well. The 09's still need time I think, maybe another three years even! This GSM is just fantastic, and every year is different, rapidly becoming one of my favorites, and can't wait until these mature fully. Not going to describe flavors, as I've been over severed today....
