Just a perfectly aged syrah which shows the potential of saxum syrahs age. Wish I had more but happy I kept this last bottle so many years Hope my recently purchased Saxums sage as well as this bottle.
Really enjoyed this. Probably the lowest alcohol percentage Saxum you'll find 14.6. It was the original and is still drinking nicely. Floral nose, lots of dark fruits. I frankly couldn't tell if it was too primary or if it was just not as complex as later vintages. I think this has a bit of time to go so I'll hold my other bottles for a bit.
New Year's Eve Celebration at Steve & Barb's house. Purple in color as expected. Blueberries and blackberries galore as expected. Full bodied, rich and opulent as expected. Drinking nicely now and should continue to do so for several more years. While I enjoyed this wine it held no surprise and little nuance. Not nearly on the level that i find SQN or Lillian to be. 50+12+12+8+8 = 90
