2017 Saxum "G2" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1474251 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 G2 Vineyard reminds me of a great vintage of Raymond Usseglio’s Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Imperiale. Flirting with perfection and one of the greatest Rhône blends I’ve tasted from California, it offers a smorgasbord of sweet black and blue fruits, crushed violets, flowery incense, and pepper. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant ruby color. Ripe black raspberry, blueberry and cherry scents are complemented by suggestions of candied lavender and incense. Sappy and broad on the palate, offering concentrated red and blue fruit, cola and spicecake flavors that steadily become sweeter with air. Clings with superb tenacity on the gently chewy finish, which features harmonious tannins and resonating red fruit liqueur and floral notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 G2 Vineyard is made up of 58% Grenache, 20% Mataro, 11% Tannat, 8% Graciano and 3% Syrah. It was made with 14% whole cluster and aged 21 months in 87% new oak. Medium to deep ruby, it has lovely scents of tar and roses to begin, with a core of ripe red and black cherries and berries and accents of turned earth, forest floor, underbrush, dried herbs and garrigue. The medium to full-bodied palate is intense, layered and earthy, with a firm, grainy frame and well-woven freshness, finishing long and layered. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark and brooding, this wine has muscle to spare, buoyed by zesty blackberry, crushed rock and bitter chocolate flavors that finish with dense tannins. Needs time. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
