    May 29, 2016 - Nicely restrained nose of blackberry, deep cassias, all fruit with a little bit of smokiness. Started to drift away after 3 hours in decanter. Good

    February 26, 2016 - Still vibrant. Enough acid to keep things interesting. Savory fruit, long finish. Very nice.

    February 19, 2016 - Probably a generous score but it had few faults. Also, the meal, company, restaurant & occasion made the experience great.
    Great color with in-your-face fruit and that compelling, floral aromatic component (from the Viognier), which took a little time to come through but held throughout. Far too fruit forward for my current liking but has held together well and was thoroughly enjoyed by the group. I had the benefit of a Fall menu at a great Napa restaurant, to be able to choose my courses with the wine in mind and so, it complimented my meal nearly perfectly.

    January 5, 2016 - Do not air. I did for forty minutes and by the time we finished the bottle, it was fading. Drank in Reidel Syrah glasses. I will drink my other bottles within a year or so

    November 9, 2015 - My last one - F**K! Such expressive aromatics on these Denner tens. Serious depth and weight and just pure, delicious (but not outrageous) Paso fruit. My only criticism of this wine is the label which looks like Van Gogh drawing a dormant vine w/roots about six years before he moved to Southern France and discovered the sun. Come on, y'all.
