Winemaker Notes

After deciding not to make a Rocket Block in 2004, the 2005 isback in full form. Aged in mainly neutral puncheons, this is themost aromatically explosive wine I have ever made, it justcomes after you with raspberries, lilacs and blueberries. In themouth it is magically both huge and light at the same time,thanks to its incredible purity. Fans of the 2003 Rocket will notbe disappointed!

Blend: 93% Grenache, 7% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Rocket Block is another exceptional offering that represents Saxum’s version of a Paso Robles Chateauneuf du Pape. As its name suggests, it explodes from the glass offering intense black raspberry and blacker fruit scents interwoven with notions of smoke, forest floor, and flowers. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with considerable tannin, acidity, and that exquisite minerality that comes from these soils, it is a super-rich, sensationally profound red that should drink beautifully for 12-15+ years. The bottled 2005s are all performing well.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Has amazing fruit purity and range of flavor, with tiers of fleshy dark berry fruit built around plum, wild berry, pomegranate and boysenberry. Holds onto a tight focus, ending with waves of supple flavors that are remarkably complex and vibrant. Grenache and Syrah.

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.
