Denner Vineyards 2016 Mother of Exiles
The most complex and ageeable vintage of Mother of Exiles we’ve ever made, this powerhouse offers a hypnotic nose filled with violets, red currant, dusty leather, black cherry, oolong tea, and cigar box. The palate is overflowing with flavors of plum, olallieberry, nutmeg, clove, seared ribeye, and Pamplona chorizo. It fills the mid-palate with an elegance that can only be likened to the texture of a silk scarf, yet it finishes with crunchy tannins that will help this beauty lay down for a decade or more – but why wait?
