2014 Saxum "Terry Hoage" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1299950 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

 A similar blend to the 2015, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard (48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre) is a deeper, richer wine that offers sensational notes of blackberries, currants, pepper, crushed violets and hints of graphite. Deep, rich and layered, yet light on its feet as well as elegant and graceful, this sensational 2014 has sweet tannin, good acidity and a big finish. Give bottles a year or two (it’s great today as well) and enjoy through 2028.  (8/2017)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Blended of 48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and slightly reticent nose of red currants and raspberry leaves with suggestions of black pepper, fragrant earth and mossy bark, with a hint of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, tightly wound and with fairly restrained, earthy/savory flavors, it has beautifully ripe tannins and a nice long refreshing finish. (LPB)  (9/2017)

95 points Vinous

 Bright purple. Heady aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and incense, along with subtle vanilla and Indian spice elements that build steadily with air. Sappy and broad on the palate, offering deeply concentrated yet lively dark berry liqueur, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that pick up a mineral flourish on the back half. At once impressively rich and energetic, with an extremely long, gently tannic finish that shows excellent clarity and spicy thrust. (JR)  (11/2017)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
