Saxum Proprietary Red James Berry Vineyard 2011, 750mL (AG94-96, WA94-96, ST94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Saxum Proprietary Red James Berry Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2011
Region: US
Appellation: Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo

AG94-96, WA94-96, ST94
Rated 94-96 points by the Wine Advocate: `The 2011 James Berry Vineyard is a lithe, lively and energetic example of this cuvee. Made from 69% Grenache, 13% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah, 2% Counoise (first vintage to have this variety) and a splash of Roussanne, with the Grenache brought up in concrete and everything else in puncheon, it offers up stunningly pure raspberry, blackberry, pepper, violets, flowers and spice to go with a full-bodied, elegant mouthfeel that builds on the palate. Seamless, pure and with fine tannin framing the finish, it will need short-term cellaring and drink beautifully through 2026. Drink 2015-2026.?` -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #208 of the Wine AdvocateMore information about this producer: `Proprietor Justin Smith continues to fashion some of the most distinctive and impressive efforts coming out of California today and despite an ever increasing level of notoriety and well deserved praise, he remains incredibly humble and down to earth. While the cooler nature of the 2010 and 2011 vintages show in the wine, there`s been a trend here to pull back slightly on the ripeness and oak regime, with an increasing reliance on concrete, whole cluster and larger format barrels. These cooler vintages have also favored the Syrah heavy blends in the lineup, with the Broken Stones, Booker and Bone Rock showing an added dimension. Nevertheless, you can`t go wrong here and this is one mailing list you do not want to miss!`
