    February 11, 2019 - Inky purple with black currant and blueberry flavors and aromas with pepper and vanilla undertones. Medium tannins that opened up nicely after about 2 hours.

    February 3, 2019 - The Syrah in this wine is exceptional. I let the bottle open up for about 90 minutes, and it was ready to drink. I enjoy Saxum Syrah, and by that standard, it was better than the typical really nice Saxum Syrah.

    August 11, 2018 - Rich red berry and cassis on the nose and silky palate with spice notes and juicy tannins on the long slightly hot finish.

    April 6, 2018 - Saxum Vertical Tasting (Mathias@Michael): Elegant and light cherry fruit with some funky notes to it like stable, barnyard and dirt.
    Juicy and long aftertaste and overall just a lovely wine. It does however feel a bit disjointed and messy but still very nice.

    March 17, 2018 - From magnum. Nose explosive, red fruits, lush, hint of pepper. Palate full, somewhat tannic, deep cherries, really nice. Big but balanced, still think it has significant upside especially in magnum format. A treat to try, thanks Loren. 94 pts
