96 The Wine Advocate

...alluring scents of cassis, white pepper, bouquet garni, milk chocolate and dried flowers. The medium-bodied palate is silky, seamless and layered, with loads of detailed spices lingering on the finish.

A dynamic wine, distinctive and powerfully built yet rich and supple, with bold flavors of black raspberry, mocha, baking spices and ginger that gather richness toward bold but refined tannins.

Saxum Vineyards is located in the Paso Robles AVA of Central California. Founded in the early 2000s by Justin Smith, a young winemaker who had previously been part-owner of Linne Calodo, Saxum leapt into the limelight in late 2010 when its 2007 James Berry Vineyards wine was named the #1 Wine of 2010 by Wine Spectator. The wine is a Rhone-style blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah. Like most of the so-called Central California Coast “Rhone Rangers,” Saxum specializes in Rhone Valley-style blends. The intense sunshine and relatively steep and rocky terrain of the Paso Robles AVA, which was officially recognized in 1983, is similar to the terrain of the Rhone Valley. Smith owns the winery with his wife Heather, and produces up to 2,800 cases of wine a year. There are currently five cuvees.
