2006 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1070786 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An unfined/unfiltered blend of 45% Syrah, 38% Grenache, and 17% Mourvedre, aged 32 months in a combination of wood vessels, the prodigious 2006 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red exhibits beautiful sweet creme de cassis, black raspberry, blackberry, truffle, smoke, and herb notes. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deeper dark berries and ripe cherry on the nose, complicated by dark chocolate and licorice. The cherry and chocolate qualities build with air and carry onto the palate, adding depth to the sweet blackberry and cassis flavors. Smoother and more dense than the Heart Stone, with a strong finishing jolt of candied licorice and black olive. Really showing its Syrah today. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2008)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Wildly rich and exotic, massive in fruit of a grilled variety, and dry, this Rhône blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre offers tons of raspberries, cherries, herbs and spices. There's some heat in the finish, but that's a minor quibble. Decadent. Inner quote mark (10/2009)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pushes the pedal on ripeness, touching on jammy, full-blown and concentrated. Blackberry, graphite, plum jam and wild berry fruit is mouthcoating, as are the tannins. With air, gains a measure of finesse. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2009)
