The Dirt Worshiper Denner Vineyards

2014 Explosive notes of blueberries, white pepper, violets, and wet granite introduce this complex beast. The palate offers steak au poivre, graphite, black raspberries and dark chocolate as the fruity and savory elements intermingle. Finishing with a seamless midpalate that is incredibly intense, yet nearly weightless in its laser like precision. Fermented 100% whole cluster. Aged for 20 months in 225L barrels, 20% new. 2013 As this wine unfolds, the nose is packed with seared blackberries, gardenia, olive tapenade, white pepper and spent campfire. The palate evolves from blue berries and violets to smoked meats and rolling tobacco – changing with every sip you take. The finish lingers like the still of a summer night, becoming denser, richer and more intense as it passes. 99% Syrah, 1% Roussanne. Aged for 16 months. 65% in once and twice used barriques, 25% in new French barriques and 10% in new Hungarian barriques. 1558 Cases Produced. 95-98 Wine Advocate, 94-96 Vinous.
