2011 Saxum "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1146448 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Kicking off the 2011s and about as seductive and sexy as they come in the vintage, the 2011 Paderewski Vineyard is an eclectic blend of 34% Zinfandel, 31% Mourvedre, 16% Tempranillo, 10% Syrah and 9% Petite Sirah that comes from a warmer terroir of chalky, calcareous soils. Full-bodied, seamless and perfectly balanced, it offers brilliant aromas and flavors of black raspberry, rose petal, bramble and violets that are to die for. A big wine to be sure, yet it stays remarkably elegant, poised and fresh on the palate, with no hard edges and an approachable, utterly impossible-to-resist profile that keeps you pouring another glass.

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Inky purple. Powerful, expansive aromas of dark berry compote, cola, dark chocolate and licorice, with a smoky mineral quality adding vivacity. Sappy, deeply pitched blackberry and cassis flavors are sharpened by juicy acidity and gain sweetness with air. Shows outstanding clarity and power on the finish, which features supple tannins and sweet, clinging dark berry preserve and floral pastille notes. (JR)  (11/2013)

94 points Vinous

 One of the more immediate wines in this range of the 2011s, the Paderewski Vineyard, is voluptuous and textured to the core, with huge dark red/black fruit, spice and leather notes. The Paderewski is dense and powerful, with plenty of immediacy but a touch less overall complexity than some of the other wines in the range. Still, the marriage of varieties in this Zinfandel-based red is terrific. (AG)  (7/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

 A bruiser, muscular and ripe, with floral boysenberry and chunky chocolate aromas that lead to rich huckleberry flavors, accented by notes of licorice and smoky, savory herb. Shows a touch of heat on the finish. (TF)  (2/2014)

K&L Notes
