Saxum 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard Red Blend
The growing season of 2014 was so dry that it is the defining feature of these wines. You can tell the vines struggled to squeeze every last drop of available moisture out of their bed of rocks that we like to call our soil. The wines are tightly wound and concentrated, but in a different way than the 2013s, more stoney is how I perceive them. Wet stones and chalk, minerality, spices, and then the core of fruit. The tannins are more refined, or transparent, than the monster tannins of ’13 or’12. These wines remind me of the 2010s, which never had huge tannins, but have evolved very slowly, taking their damn sweet time to really strut their stuff. They should be ready to enjoy in a year or two but I think they will show best in a decade.

Wine Advocate - 97-99 Points
"The 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard, which is normally a Syrah dominated blend incorporating smaller amounts of Grenache and Mourvèdre, comes from Jennifer and Terry Hoage's estate vineyard located to the east of James Berry. It has lots of blackfruits, cranberry, red plum and mint to go with a full-bodied,sappy, beautifully fresh and layered style on the palate. Changing every time I came back to the glass, with fabulous complexity, I think it will take a year or so for this to hit its stride,but it should evolve beautifully."
