2012 Saxum "Terry Hoage" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1188457 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Just bottled five weeks ago, the 2012 Terry Hoage Vineyard (330 cases) is a thrilling blend of 51% Syrah, 31% Grenache and 18 % Mourvedre. It has an up front approachable and sexy feel in its cherry blossom and black raspberry fruit, crushed flowers and spice aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, concentrated and with sweet tannin, it’s the most ready-to-go in the lineup, yet will still have 10-12 years of longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Silky and layered in the glass, the 2012 Terry Hoage Vineyard is a bit laid back for a site that has typically yielded more forward, fruit-driven wines. Plum, sweet spice and mint notes are all laced together nicely in the glass. Overall, the 2012 is a very pretty, feminine wine built more on grace than power. The 2012 is 51% Syrah, 31% Grenache and 18 Mourvèdre, picked a little earlier than the other wines in the range. (AG) 92+ Inner quote mark (7/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Generous blackberry, black licorice, anise and sage notes give this a deep, intense core of flavor, matched by chewy, gripping tannins. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2016 through 2028. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Meaty, fresh. Notes of spiced red fruit, with black tea and a long savoury, saline finish. The most immediately approachable of the Saxum wines in this tasting, with the most gentle tannin. Thoughtful, delicious with purity. Allow a little more time in bottle and aerate upon opening. 17/20 points (ECB) Inner quote mark (7/2015)
