Saxum 2013 Paderewski Vineyard Red Blend
For the first time in the Paderewski, the Zinfandel is in second place and Mourvedre has taken the lead. As the vines at this vineyard age, the winemaker is more and more a believer that the Mourvedre from here is insane. There are always two main lots from this vineyard, the first picked is the Zin/Temp/Syrah lot (all co-fermented in a single concrete cube). The Temp balances the Zin out and it is perfectly delicious and fresh. Then the later picked Mourvedre/Petite Sirah lot comes in - black, rich, textured with huge chalky tannins and fruit for days. When the blends are finally assembled, the Zin really makes everything pop.

"One of the more accessible 2013s is the 2013 Paderewski Vineyard, which checks in as a blend of 34% Mourvedre, 33% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah and the rest Tempranillo. Its deep ruby, vibrant color is followed by sensational notes of caramelized black cherries, spice box, peppery herbs and chalky minerality. Rich, full-bodied, utterly seamless and gorgeous on the palate, it's an incredible expression of this higher elevation, warm site that readers shouldn't miss."

"Bright violet color. The nose displays a complex array of black and blue fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of incense, mocha and licorice. Stains the palate with powerful blueberry and violet pastille flavors sharpened and lifted by juicy acidity. Concentrated, sappy and pure, finishing with outstanding thrust and smooth tannins that are overwhelmed by the wine's dense fruit."

Wine Spectator - 92 Points
"Powerful and loaded with personality, this features aromas of smoky dried berry and black licorice that open to dense, rich flavors of plum, cracked pepper beef and grilled herb. The tannins are ripe but muscular. Mourvedre, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Tempranillo. Best from 2018 through 2027."
