Saxum Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Heart Stone Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Heart Stone Vineyard is a tiny 7 acre vineyard planted on a gentle South slope of limestone and shale. With 8 different clones of Syrah, 4 of Grenache, and one Mourvedre we aim to produce a wine that is both compelling and complex. The high density planting allows the vines to hold only 1 or 2 pounds of fruit each, in turn concentrating the flavors. Saxum's vineyards are all farmed to strict standards. We respect our land and farm it sustainably and therefore no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used. Everything is done by hand and yields are kept naturally low from the rocky soils and extensive thinning. Because our vine's roots penetrate deep through the fissures in the rock irrigation is rarely needed.

Saxum Vineyards is a boutique winery overseen by winemakers Heather and Justin Smith in the Temple Gap area of Paso Robles, California. The winery focuses on red wines using the Rhone varietal stalwarts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Production is kept to the minimal output of under 3000 cases per year, with low yields divided between the Broken Stones, Heart Stone, James Berry, Booker, Rocket Block, and Bone Rock vineyards. The soils in the growing areas are mainly calcareous, providing incentive for roots to dig deep for natural moisture, with elevated locations that ensure balanced grape ripeness. The wines are handmade, organic, and sustainable, free of added chemicals or vineyard pesticides.  Read less
