Denner Vineyards 2016 Mother of Exiles
The 2017 Mother of Exiles offers a profound nose filled with red currant, tar, blackberry, and an exotic intermingling of chipotle, cumin seed and cardamom. The palate has generous flavors of dark chocolate, Bing cherry, anise and a hint of menthol that brings a level of freshness as it heads towards a thrilling finish. The midpalate is luxurious, with a silky entry and subtle, yet grippy tannins on the long, drawn-out finish.
