  • 2012 Saxum James Berry Vineyard – USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (10/27/2018)
    WIMLNR (forgot)

    Tasted double blind.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of Kirsch and black berries. Flavors of black berries, black raspberries, black cherries and plums. Medium acidity, firm tannin, full bodied.

    My guess was this is a 2015 Paso Robles Red Blend. Perhaps a Saxum?

  • 2010 Saxum Heart Stone Vineyard – USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (10/10/2018)

Flavors of currants, raspberries, black cherries and some black pepper on the long finish. Medium acidity, firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with a little air to open it up or continue to hold.
