2017 Denner Vineyards ‘The Dirt Worshipper’
Vinous 95 ~ Vivid purple. Intensely perfumed dark berry preserve, violet, smoky mineral and exotic spice aromas show outstanding clarity and mineral lift. Palate-staining black raspberry, cherry preserve, licorice, spice cake and floral pastille flavors are supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Rich but lively as well, finishing with firm thrust on a strikingly long finish that features even tannins and repeating floral and spice qualities. 50 percent whole clusters.
