    October 11, 2019 - Seemed closed compared to the 2014 i recently enjoyed. Opened for two hours of slow-ox but wasn't enough.

    May 4, 2019 - This has much more elegance and a higher acidity to it than what you’d expect from a Saxum. Great balance, length and depth. But not as opulent as other Saxums.

    Drink this at room temperature and with enough air, better with at least 5 more years

    December 26, 2018 - 2hr decant. Not bold like other Saxums I’ve had. More fruit driven

    December 14, 2018 - This clear and very dee red wine was the last wine of a 4 bottle lunch with a group of gentlemen. The wine had a bouquet of ripe cherries, some pepper and quite a bit of leather. In the glass were these cherries and leather, mixed with a hint of bacon and a slight bit of petrol which gave the wine a slight sour aftertaste. Strong on the acidity and the tannins with a good finish. This bottle was good but slightly "disorganized".

    April 7, 2018 - Most of the more recent notes here reflect my experience. Lots of red fruit, with prominent notes of red cherries, raspberries, some spice box and earthy elements. Medium bodied, this is definitely not as serous a wine as many of the other Saxum's. Nice lithe delivery of delicate red fruit, a touch of sweetness, well balanced and fairly polished. Tannins are totally integrated. Finishes with a pleasant 20 sec finish. This is ready to drink now.
