2009 Denner "The Dirt Worshipper" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1150674 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Nose is stewed beef and black licorice, like a baby Crozes-Hermitage. Palate is robust of licorice and beef, long lingering finish of fruit and spice. Made from 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. Drink now. Inner quote mark (5/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Both dense and concentrated, with a tart berry edge, this is firm, complex and concentrated. This being mostly Syrah, it's more linear, yet its focus on mineral, game meat and smoke is alluring. Syrah and Viognier. Best from 2012 through 2020. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright purple. Slow to open on the nose, eventually offering up scents of dark fruit preserves, olive, floral oils and vanilla. Broad, deeply pitched cassis and blueberry flavors stain the palate, with gentle acidity providing lift. Very rich but also lively, with impressive finishing thrust and a lingering note of candied violet. No way I'd open this one for at least another five years. 91(+?) points Inner quote mark (10/2011)
