    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our second Paderewski bottling is firing on all cylinders. I backed off on the Syrah and used a lot more Mourvedre, and added a new component, Tempranillo. Yes I know, we are crazy! It's a Zinfandel/Mourvedre/Tempranillo/Syrah/Petite Sirah blend, and it shows its terrior beautifully. What you get from this wine is a taste of the Paderewski Vineyard. It is dark, brooding and muscular, while at the same time jam packed with tons of sweet fruits. There's even a spicy tannic side lurking in there, underneath those fruit flavors. Thanks to the cool, long growing season, it has a wonderful freshness and purity to it combined with great underlying tannins.

    Blend: 36% Zinfandel, 26% Mourvedre, 19% Tempranillo, 11% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah

    Critical Acclaim:

    A powerhouse blend that's focused and balanced, yet loaded with personality and a sense of place. Spicy wild berry and mineral aromas lead to rich, layered flavors of boysenberry, toasted herb and anise wrapped around muscular tannins. Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, Tempranillo, Syrah and Petite Sirah.

    The 2010 Paderewski Vineyard is firing on all cylinders today. The Zinfandel is very much front and center in a big, boisterous wine full of personality. Mocha, chocolate, spice and plum notes caress the palate in a succulent, highly expressive wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. This is without question the biggest and most exuberant of the Saxum wines. Today it is stunning. The 2010 is 35% Zinfandel, 26% Mourvèdre, 19% Tempranillo, 11% Syrah and 9% Petite Sirah.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Opaque purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of spice-accented black raspberry, cherry, violet and incense, with a bright mineral quality gaining power with air. Densely packed but impressively vibrant, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that show iqueur-like depth and intensity. Floral pastille and raspberry notes carry through a long, sappy, seamless finish.
