Saxum 2018 James Berry Vineyard Red Blend

Leading the charge is the 2018 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 2018 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.

Jeb Dunnuck - 99 Points
"Showing better from bottle than barrel (always a good sign), the 2018 James Berry Vineyard is another stunning wine in a long line of stunning wines from this estate. Based on 64% Grenache, 16% Mataro, 14% Syrah, and the rest Carignan, incredible notes of blueberries, wild strawberries, licorice, new leather, herbes de Provence, and candied violets all emerge from the glass, and it's full-bodied, with an incredible sense of purity and elegance, flawless balance, and a huge finish. It has some early appeal yet is going to be best with 2-4 years of bottle age and will still be drinking beautifully at age 20."
