This is just am amazing winery. Every bottle of Saxum I've had lives up to the greatest of expectations. I enjoyed this bottle with a veal porterhouse and three cheese risotto. Happy happy happy. Great fruit, a hint of earth, perfect balance. It was a little short on the finish, but who cares, just take another sip... Problem solved. There was a little left for the next night; I swear it got better! Earthiness disappeared, it seemed to put a little weight on overnight, and had a longer finish. Maybe that means it should age a little longer, or I just should have let it breathe a little longer ( always an issue when drinking in a restaurant ).
This was a really unexpected surprise! My wife and I drank our glasses separately, but had the same response!!! This was really great stuff. Big fruit, balanced, fine stag's leap tannins, smoooooth and wonderful. Left me with a long chocolatey finish. Got to find some more.
Really surprised! Had a couple bottles years ago and was pleased with them, but this last bottle has totally evolved. It has put on considerable weight and maintained it's fruit. Full bodied, beautifully balanced, it was just candy. SOOOOO sad it was my last bottle!
