2012 Denner Mother of Exiles

Paso Robles Red Bordeaux Blend more

4/17/2015 - wine247365 wrote: NR

red berries, strawberry, meaty mid-palate. smooth finish & texture. well-balanced. My #1 versus their Zin and Syrah, but maybe equal to my second, more oxygenated pour of their Ditch Digger.

aromas were plentiful and fruity. palate: not too fruit forward. minerality, medium body. acidic. dryer finish. Tannins not aggressive, but were hiding in the background. I wouldn't open until at least mid-2016.

2012 Denner The Ditch Digger

Paso Robles Grenache Blend, Grenache more

4/17/2015 - wine247365 wrote: NR

Drank during a tasting at the winery. We had two separate pours from two separate bottles. While I can't remember if the 1st bottle was recently opened, I noticed that our pour from the 2nd bottle was the very last of the wine.

From the first bottle: smooth, minerals, earthy mid-palate, less peppery than their Zin, bit of a drying finish. didn't care for this one on their tasting lineup. maybe it's better with food.

Later, we had a second pour from the last of a bottle and it was very good. bigger, mildly spicy, medium-full body. plum/vanilla finish which was long. The flavor improvement must be from the extra oxygen it absorbed. Just goes to show how critical it is to let the wines open up.

2007 Denner Syrah

Paso Robles more

5/18/2015 - sesalmon Likes this wine: 92 points

Smooth, bright and palate-coating, with a mix of sweet dark jammy fruit, spice with hints of tobacco. This wine is rich and layered, with a long lingering finish with velvety tannins and floral notes. This wine is still going strong--glad I have one bottle left!

2012 Denner Sacred Burro

Paso Robles Carignan more

5/22/2015 - pocchia Likes this wine: 89 points

Carig-what? Carignan my friends. Popped & poured. In the glass its dark magenta has a transparency that shimmers as it's poured. The nose! The nose belies its freshness. Reminds me of walking through the forest after it rains - it's clean but heavy with a smell of wet wood. Then SURPRISE! Ha! You thought it would be thicker, heavier, but no! Young, bright and dances on your palate with a sharp structure that is oh-so wonderful as it hits the front and then zips towards the middle where the tannins say "Hello!", and then to the back of your palate where it lingers for a bit. Stems up!

5/20/2015 - Wine Lover 1964 Likes this wine: 93 points

Had at winery. Such a big red wine had to join their wine club. Ditch digger and dirt worshipper also unique syrahs from Paso but Mother was best from our tasting trip. Tannins, structure and fruit makes this great now and will only get better over next 10 years. Cab blended with petit verdot makes this special Estate wine. The aromas of all 3 if these is so good it's crazy!

just okay. Not very happy with most Paso '11 wines. Not bad, but memorable. Second day was almost tasteless. Not expecting a lot from the last bottle either :(

No formal notes. Decanted at restaurant for about an hr while we drank brother inlaw's spicy Pinot. Then on to the Denner which was rich and wonderful.

5/14/2015 - Ltomanek Likes this wine: 95 points

The wine has held its promise so far. It has violet aroma, some sage and pepper and a lot of dark berry fruit. The tannins still hold it together and it has aged beautifully so far.

2012 Denner Viognier

Paso Robles more

5/3/2015 - ericindc Likes this wine: 89 points

Still a bit primary and young, I think this needs 3 more years. Should be much better in time. Nose of white fruits, browned apple, vanilla, cinnamon?, sugarcane, slightly sharp. Very forward with strong fruit flavors, bitter melon, oak, nice acidity (rare for viognier), and very long finish. Medium/heavy body, good acidity. As I said, this is very young, and I think it should be cellared until at least 2018.

An amazing Zin. Plenty of fruit on the nose including berries and a little citrus but also has a some earth/leather there as well. Smooth and structured on the palate with a bit of tannin and a great finish where the fruit and touch of spice and leather reappear. Very enjoyable, start to finish.

4/17/2015 - dfarley Likes this wine: 92 points

Definitely not a rip-your-face-off tannic bomb like you'd expect from Napa. A bit more old world in style but a style I prefer. Black fruit and a bit of smoke on the nose. Delicious with a nice steak. Exactly the type of Cab I would expect from Denner which makes me happy.
