Saxum Syrah Blend Paso Robles Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 wines, are quite powerful. There are some very substantial tannins on these wines, they are muscular! I feel that these late releases of the 2009’s are going to benefit from a few years of cellar age, even more so than any wines we have ever made, so be patient with them. Enjoy some now, but be sure to stash some in your cellar so you can see how they evolve after a few years. You will be well rewarded for waiting.

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
