2015 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1341426 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from 33% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 24% Syrah and 11% Counoise, the 2015 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red reveals a deep garnet-purple color and expressive nose of black currants, black cherries and mulberries with hints of baking spices, chocolate box, violets and Sichuan pepper. The palate is surprisingly elegant, with great intensity of flavors framed by soft, sensuous tannins and a lively line carrying the fruit and spices to a long, long finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Heady aromas of mineral-tinged dark berry liqueur, incense and roasted coffee, with a suave floral nuance adding brightness. Smoky, appealingly sweet and focused, offering palate-staining black and blue fruit and candied licorice flavors that are braced by juicy acidity and a late flourish of five-spice powder. Closes with outstanding clarity and floral-dominated persistence, leaving suave floral pastille and spicecake notes behind, eventually. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Checking in as a blend of 33% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 24% Syrah and 11% Counoise, the 2015 James Berry Vineyard had just been bottled, but certainly wasn’t showing the worse for it. It’s deep ruby/purple tinged color is followed by an incredible bouquet of black raspberries, garrigue-like herbs, white pepper and spring flowers. Ethereally textured, silk, full-bodied and perfectly balanced, it has substantial tannin, yet they’re ripe, polished and fine, and it has a terrific finish. Like all great wines, it stays light and weightless on the palate, and will evolve for another decade or more. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A dynamic combination of power and refinement, with a penetrating but balanced core of polished tannins and expressive blackberry, stony mineral and dark licorice flavors that finish with verve. (TF, Web-2018) Inner quote mark
