Saxum 2017 James Berry Vineyard Red Blend

Leading the charge is the 2017 James Berry Vineyard. For those of you lucky enough to have experienced the JBV over the years, Iíd say this one ranks right up there in the top echelon, and it may be the most open of any vintage yet. Of course it will improve with some age, letís not get hasty here! But I do think this one is generous in its youth. Like all of our 2017 wines, the tannins are very smooth and fine, no hard edges to be found. Though itís the aromatics that really draw you in. Red fruit centered, really lifted and bright, yet thereís a background of chaparral and sagebrush providing some low notes too... I could smell this wine all day. Thereís a kiss of French oak, 48% spent 21 months in new puncheons and the remaining rested in used foudres or puncheons. The real fun is opening this wine next to the 2016 JBV or the 2017 G2V and choosing a favorite.

Jeb Dunnuck - 99 Points
"I was able to taste the 2017 James Berry Vineyard beside the perfect 2016 and thereís not much difference between these two sensational wines. The 2017 reveals a deep ruby color as well as more straight, focused, yet beautifully concentrated style that reveals gorgeous black raspberry and blackberry fruits interwoven with pepper, spring flowers, earth, and incense. Pure, full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, and an incredible wine any way you look at it, give bottles 2-3 years and itís going to evolve effortlessly for 15-20 years."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 Points: "A deep, detailed wine, with a potent personality. This is stylishly structured, offering rich, full-bodied blackberry, dark mocha and smoky mineral notes that build tension toward supple tannins. Grenache, Syrah, Mataro and Carignane."
