2014 Saxum "Terry Hoage Vineyard" Willow Creek District Rhône Blend

SKU #1299950 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A similar blend to the 2015, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard (48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre) is a deeper, richer wine that offers sensational notes of blackberries, currants, pepper, crushed violets and hints of graphite. Deep, rich and layered, yet light on its feet as well as elegant and graceful, this sensational 2014 has sweet tannin, good acidity and a big finish. Give bottles a year or two (it’s great today as well) and enjoy through 2028. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blended of 48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and slightly reticent nose of red currants and raspberry leaves with suggestions of black pepper, fragrant earth and mossy bark, with a hint of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, tightly wound and with fairly restrained, earthy/savory flavors, it has beautifully ripe tannins and a nice long refreshing finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright purple. Heady aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola and incense, along with subtle vanilla and Indian spice elements that build steadily with air. Sappy and broad on the palate, offering deeply concentrated yet lively dark berry liqueur, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that pick up a mineral flourish on the back half. At once impressively rich and energetic, with an extremely long, gently tannic finish that shows excellent clarity and spicy thrust. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows depth and torque, offering dark raspberry and rose petal aromas and densely structured smoky plum, pepper and mineral flavors that build toward big but polished tannins. (TF, Web-2018) Inner quote mark
