2010 Saxum "Terry Hoage" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1120060 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Terry Hoage Vineyard is a blend of 46% Syrah, 33% Grenache, and 21% Mourvedre that comes from Jennifer and Terry Hoage’s west side Paso vineyard. Less gamey than when tasted from barrel, it offers up a pure, beautifully fresh bouquet of red and black fruits, spring flowers, ground pepper, leather, and wet stone-like minerality that flows to a rich, fabulously concentrated, and textured palate. Showing the savory, mineral characteristics of the vintage, as well as noticeable underlying tannin, this gorgeous effort needs short-term cellaring, and will thrill for over a decade.

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saxum's 2010 Terry Hoage, here in its first vintage, has developed beautifully in bottle. Today, the Grenache aromatics are incredibly resonant as the Hoage shows off a floral dimension that was not at all apparent when the wines was first bottled. Finely-knit and super-refined on the palate, the 2010 is hugely appealing. What a gorgeous wine this has turned out to be. I can't wait to see what Justin Smith does with this fruit as the vines get older. This first effort is promising, to say the least. The blend is 46% Syrah, 33% Grenache and 21% Mourvèdre.

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Vivid ruby. Seductive, highly perfumed nose displays strikingly pure raspberry and floral aromas. Fleshy red and dark berry flavors are enlivened by intriguing blood orange and floral pastille accents and become spicier with air. Picks up a suggestion of mocha on the finish, which is impressively focused, balanced and long. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense and detailed, exhibiting a crushed rock backbone and tannic structure, with dark berry, licorice and floral scents. This is very tightly wound and sure to benefit from cellaring. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2013)
