2005 Denner "Ditch Digger" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

SKU #1030324

92 points from Robert Parker: "The 2005 The Ditch Digger is a blend of 43% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre, and 8% Counoise (could this be a Paso Robles version of the famed Chateauneuf du Pape Beaucastel?). A deep ruby/purple color, full body, superb richness, and notes of truffle oil intermixed with black cherries, blackberries, asphalt, smoke, and camphor emerge from this complex, finesse-styled red. It also possesses silky tannins and a long, heady finish. The good news is there are over 1,000 cases of this blockbuster. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Denner Vineyards is still under the radar, but is undoubtedly an up-and-coming source for good Rhone Ranger offerings. And why shouldn’t it be as its vineyards are situated just across the street from the fabulous grand cru site of Saxum’s James Berry Vineyard." (Aug. 2007) This very modest name bellies a rich red which exhibits a lavender, tarry, ripe black/ blue berry, mineral scented nose. On the palate these elements are echoed on the expansive, full mid-palate and long, spicy finish. (43% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 23% Mourvedre, 8% Counoise)
