Winemaker Notes

Winemaker Justin notes this about Saxum James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock: "They are starting to blossom! What perplexed me about this vintage was the tannin structure. It started out massive, and made me think that these wines were going to need years in the cellar before they began showing their stuff. I still think 3-5 years will greatly benefit the wines, but they will give great pleasure to those who can't hold out. I would drink the Heart Stone and maybe the Booker Vineyard first while you let the Broken Stones and Bone Rock slumber."

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 99
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Also not yet bottled, the 2012 James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock, a similar blend to the '11, is 92% Syrah, 5% Roussanne and 3% Mourvedre. This cuvee always shows brilliantly from barrel, and this is no exception, with it giving up gorgeous chocolaty dark fruits, white pepper, mint and charred meat-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, structured and tight, it has a tad more flesh than the '11 did at this stage, yet will still need short-term cellaring to round into form. It will have upward of two decades of longevity. Barrel Sample: 96-99
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Exhibits a powerful core of rich dark berry, graphite, chocolate, dusty earth and tobacco flavors. Slowly unfolds to reveal more nuances, suggesting that this may develop for some time. Prominent tannins. Best from 2016 through 2029.

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.
