2012 Denner "Mother of Exiles" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1210547 92 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I'm continuing to see more and more top-quality Bordeaux blends from Paso and Denner's 2012 Mother Of Exiles is a great example of this trend. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot that saw 22 months in 85% new French oak, it has beautiful cassis, plums, violets, wild herbs and damp earth nuances to go with a full-bodied, fresh, elegant and polished style on the palate. This beauty fleshes out nicely with time in the glass, has a solid mid-palate and fine tannin that frame the finish. (JD) 92+ Inner quote mark (8/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Heady aromas of cherry compote, red- and blackcurrant, cigar box and pipe tobacco, with a hint of vanilla emerging with aeration. Shows excellent depth and energy to its flavors of bitter cherry, cassis, rose pastille and peppery spices, with juicy acidity providing spine. Firms up nicely on the finish, which clings with strong tenacity and alluring sweetness. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Succeeds in presenting a supple, elegant mix of understated and refined flavors, with cedar, anise, currant, scorched earth and graphite notes woven amid fleshy, fine-grained tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2015)
