2003 Saxum "Rocket Block - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1015758 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark With layers of sweet fruit and a more than passing resemblance to a top Chateauneuf du Pape, the 2003 Rocket Block James Berry Vineyard is comprised of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah. Decadent and hedonistic to the max, with layers of blackberry, black raspberry, spice, tobacco leaf, cured meats and licorice, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, fantastic purity and a sweet, unctuous profile that’s hard to resist. (JD) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright ruby-red. Attractively high-toned aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, tar, smoked meat and leather. Thick, dense and sweet, with enticing, sappy dark berryflavors. At once layered and firm, finishing with very suave tannins and terrific length. Despite the elevated alcohol, this does not strike me as at all heavy. A warm October ripened the Mourvedre well in 2003. Inner quote mark (8/2005)
