Community Tasting Notes 90

    January 2, 2021 - Purple in color. 15.6% ABV. 79% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 7% Grenache, 5% Mourvedre and 2% Roussanne. Gorgeous nose of blue fruits, creme de cassis and flowers. Medium to full bodied with with perfect acidity. Well balanced. Big wine but perhaps not as big as I usually expect from Saxum. Blueberries, raspberry liqueur, roasted herbs and minerals on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. Tremendous wine that seems to be in a really good spot right now. Best over the next several years.

    December 30, 2020 - Beautiful floral nose. Cherry, raspberry, anise, cedar and stone on the palate with a pleasant touch of acidity. Rich but definitely not a fruit bomb. There is a good balance between power and finesse.

    December 29, 2020 - Not as flamboyant a Broken Stones as from other vintages, but still an excellent wine that paired well with fillet mignon. (Dec. 25, 2020 @ Mason, OH)

    December 20, 2020 - This was about a good a Saxum as I’ve had. I don’t think they need as much age as some recommend. Nicely lifted nose of forest floor, aromatics and green tea. Flavors are also well integrated, blueberry, aromatic -enes, pepper, cola. Tannins are certainly there substantial but smooth and leave a finish that seems to last for 30 seconds or more.
