Our 2007s, are what I feel is the best vintage yet for Saxum. They are more complex, layered, and concentrated than previous years. These wines have a long life ahead of them due to their great acidity and tannin structure, yet they are enjoyable now because they are so well balanced. This wine might be the most structured blend Saxum produces and because of its density, tannin, and acidity, it needs a few years to unfold. Our wines are never racked off their lees and are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Bone Rock blend comes from the Bone Rock block of James Berry Vineyard. We unearthed fossilized whale bones when we terraced it and then needed to use jack hammers to plant the vines.
Blend: 82% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre, 5% Grenache
