    Winemaker's Notes:

    It is wildly spicy and dark, with a real teriyaki beef jerky component that I absolutely love. When all the components come together they make a truly unique expression of Paso Robles terrior, light on its feet but still packed to the brim with character and intensity.

    Blend: 46% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvedre

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saxum's 2010 Terry Hoage, here in its first vintage, has developed beautifully in bottle. Today, the Grenache aromatics are incredibly resonant as the Hoage shows off a floral dimension that was not at all apparent when the wines was first bottled. Finely-knit and super-refined on the palate, the 2010 is hugely appealing. What a gorgeous wine this has turned out to be. I can't wait to see what Justin Smith does with this fruit as the vines get older. This first effort is promising, to say the least. The blend is 46% Syrah, 33% Grenache and 21% Mourvèdre.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Vivid ruby. Seductive, highly perfumed nose displays strikingly pure raspberry and floral aromas. Fleshy red and dark berry flavors are enlivened by intriguing blood orange and floral pastille accents and become spicier with air. Picks up a suggestion of mocha on the finish, which is impressively focused, balanced and long.

    International Wine Cellar

    Intense and detailed, exhibiting a crushed-rock backbone and tannic structure, with dark berry, licorice and floral scents. This is very tightly wound and sure to benefit from cellaring. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre.
