Winemaker Notes

The 'Rewski Vineyard is in a slightly warmer microclimate, and the resulting wine definitely leans on the dark fruit side. Saxum utilized a good amount of Tempranillo and Mourvedre in this blend, with less Syrah then typical. What always blows me away about this vineyard is how floral it is. Ripe peaches are consistently found in the nose, along with honeysuckle and roses. It's as if this wine had a large percentage of Viognier hiding in it. However, on the pallet it has tons of dark fruit..... think black cherries dipped in bitter dark chocolate. The finish is classic 'Rewski, with long echoes of chalky dusty tannins.

Blend: 34% Zinfandel, 31% Mourvedre, 16% Tempranillo, 10% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Much more sexy and voluptuous, the 2011 Paderewski Vineyard (34% Zinfandel, 31% Mourvedre, 16% Tempranillo, 10% Syrah and 9% Petite Sirah) delivers loads of black and blue fruits, spice, incense, chocolate and pan dripping-like savoriness to go with a full-bodied, decadently styled mouthfeel. Showing chalky minerality on the finish, it’s a complex 2011 that should be reasonably approachable on release and have 12-15 years of overall longevity.

Range: 94-96 Points

WS 92
Wine Spectator
A bruiser, muscular and ripe, with floral boysenberry and chunky chocolate aromas that lead to rich huckleberry flavors, accented by notes of licorice and smoky, savory herb. Shows a touch of heat on the finish. Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, Tempranillo, Syrah and Petite Sirah.

Paso Robles

View all wine

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, fruity, and powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
