Winemaker Notes

The growing season of 2014 was so dry that it is the defining feature of these wines. You can tell the vines struggled to squeeze every last drop of available moisture out of their bed of rocks that Saxum calls its soil. The wines are tightly wound and concentrated, but in a different way than the 2013s, more stoney. Wet stones and chalk, minerality, spices, and then the core of fruit. The tannins are more refined, or transparent, than the monster tannins of ’13 or ’12. These wines are reminiscent of the 2010s, which never had huge tannins, but have evolved very slowly, taking their sweet time to really strut their stuff.

Blend: 68% Syrah, 32% Mourvedre

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Booker Vineyard is a blend of 68% Syrah and 32% Mourvèdre and has a deep garnet-purple color, displaying aromas of cassis, espresso, violets and dried herbs with suggestions of bacon fat, lavender and Sichuan pepper. Full-bodied, rich and with beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins, it has a generous mid-palate of ripe, rich fruit and great length, giving up loads of spice notes.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A real bruiser, but this maintains a sense of depth and breeding, with floral raspberry jam and mocha aromas and intense, layered blackberry, peppered beef and crushed stone flavors that gain speed toward big but polished tannins. Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2019 through 2027.

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.
