2005 Saxum "Rocket Block - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1085447 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another superb southern Rhone-like blend (Chateauneuf du Pape-like actually) that comes from a single block of James Berry Vineyard, the 2005 Rocket Block James Berry Vineyard offers off-the-hook levels of sweet blackcurrants, black raspberries, exotic spices, crushed flowers and hints of incense on the nose. (JD) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Has amazing fruit purity and range of flavor, with tiers of fleshy dark berry fruit built around plum, wild berry, pomegranate and boysenberry. Holds onto a tight focus, ending with waves of supple flavors that are remarkably complex and vibrant. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Graceful red berry and cherry aromas, with complicating floral and mineral qualities adding energy. Brisk but pliant redcurrant and strawberry on the palate, with silky tannins adding shape. Very fresh, elegant and precise, with the balance and suave acidity to reward cellaring. This is more understated than the other bottlings I tried at Saxum, but lacks nothing in flavor interest. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2007)
