2015 Saxum "G2" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1345219 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 G2 Vineyard had just been bottled and is one of the lighter colored releases in the lineup. A blend of 56% Grenache and 44% Mourvèdre, it has an ethereal perfume of kirsch, blueberries, seaweed wrappers, herbes de Provence and hints of dried pepper. This flows to an elegant, silky, sweetly fruited red beauty that stays beautifully light and elegant on the palate, with fine, savory tannin, impeccable balance and a great finish. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The newest vineyard in the Saxum lineup, the 2015 G2 Vineyard contains 56% Grenache and 44% Mourvèdre. Sporting a medium to deep garnet-purple color, it leaps from the glass with an exuberant red currant and Bing cherry nose, complemented by notes of dried Provence herbs, lavender, orange peel and black pepper. Full-bodied with a firm, grainy texture and tons of freshness, it has lovely spice and herbal layers on the very long finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, lurid violet color. Energetic, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red and blue fruits are complicated by suggestions of incense, Asian spices and pungent flowers. Broad and fleshy on entry, then more taut in the middle, offering sappy, densely packed black raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and an exotic suggestion of five-spice powder. Finishes strikingly long and sweet, featuring slow-building, even tannins, a touch of smokiness and repeating red fruit and floral character. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has torque to spare, but there's also richness and polish, plus black licorice, smoky pepper beef, currant and crushed stone accents that build power and depth toward bold tannins. Grenache and Mourvèdre. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
