2014 Saxum "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Willow Creek District Red Blend

SKU #1299949 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Checking in as a final blend of 30% Mourvèdre, 22% Zinfandel, 13% Syrah, 13% Tempranillo and the balance Grenache and Petite Sirah, the 2014 Paderewski Vineyard is as voluptuous and decadent as it gets. Plum sauce, exotic spices, white pepper, candy corn and spring flowers, it hits the palate with a broad, expansive, sexy style, ripe tannin, no weight and a blockbuster finish. It’s so well balanced and seamless, it can come across as a touch easy, yet it has terrific complexity, good mid-palate density and a great, great finish. This is what great wine is all about.

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Displays sexy, highly expressive aromas of cassis, blueberry, Indian spices and candied flowers, along with notes of incense and mocha. Sweet, pliant and expansive in the mouth, offering intense red and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors that become spicier and more energetic with air. Dense but nervy and light on its feet, finishing with outstanding clarity, smooth tannins and solid, mineral-driven punch. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Distinctive and loaded with personality, offering blackberry, smoky beef, licorice and pepper flavors that take on richness and polish toward the long finish. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A 30% Mourvèdre, 22% Zinfandel, 13% Syrah, 10% Petite Sirah, 13% Tempranillo and 12% Grenache blend, the 2014 Paderewski Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of warm mulberries, blueberry compote and preserved plums with touches of Chinese five spice, licorice, black pepper and underbrush. The full-bodied palate has a solid frame of chewy tannins and just enough freshness supporting the earthy, tightly knit flavors, finishing on a peppery note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)
