Winemaker Notes

Our second Paderewski bottling is firing on all cylinders. Ibacked off on the Syrah and used a lot more Mourvedre, andadded 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 isa taste of the Paderewski Vineyard. It is dark, brooding andmuscular, while at the same time jam packed with tons of sweetfruits. There's even a spicy tannic side lurking... View More

Critical Acclaim

V 95
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

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.

WS 95
Wine Spectator

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.

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

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.

Saxum
Saxum Vineyards is focused on producing Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre based blends from the Templeton Gap of Paso Robles, California. We let our rocky calcareous soils, steep hillsides, and cooling ocean breezes speak through our wines by keeping our yields extremely low, picking fruit at the peak of ripeness, and using a minimalist approach in the cellar. Production is kept at a total of 2200-2800 cases per year divided between 6 different cuvees, Broken Stones, Heart Stone Vineyard, James Berry Vineyard, Booker Vineyards, Rocket Block and Bone Rock.
