Denner Vineyards Paso Robles
The Denners established their vineyard here in 1999. Farmed entirely by sustainable practices the calcareous soils are also a source of top quality fruit for other producers including Justin Smith at SAXUM. The Viognier is a rich, full style with unctuous fruit and should be enjoyed young. The Syrah is ripe, full and marked by a spicy black pepper character and the rich almost jammy character of the variety here. The Ditch Digger blends Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre and possesses a touch more minerality and is firmer and more classically structured. Cabernet, Grenache and Zinfandel are also made along with a Bordeaux blend Mother of Exiles. Expect the reds to develop well over the medium term. (DM)
