Winemaker's Notes:

It is wildly spicy and dark, with a real teriyaki beef jerky component that I absolutely love. When all the components come together they make a truly unique expression of Paso Robles terrior, light on its feet but still packed to the brim with character and intensity.

Blend: 46% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvedre

My Notes:

About Saxum:

Saxum Vineyards is focused on producing Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre based blends from the Templeton Gap of Paso Robles, California. We let our rocky calcareous soils, steep hillsides, and cooling ocean breezes speak through our wines by keeping our yields extremely low, picking fruit at the peak of ripeness, and using a minimalist approach in the cellar. Production is kept at a total of 2200-2800 cases per year divided between 6 different cuvees, Broken Stones, Heart Stone Vineyard, James Berry Vineyard, Booker Vineyards, Rocket Block and Bone Rock.
