Pretty closed even though I decanted it. Was still awesome - went great with the amazing Thanksgiving dinner that Vanessa prepared - but this one could probably use a couple of more years in the cellar before it really sings. — 9 days ago
Actually a Mourvedre-heavy blend, this is one of the more interesting blends from Saxum that I’ve had in a while. 30% Mourvedre, 22% Zin, 13% Syrah, 13% Tempranillo, 12% Grenache, and 10% Petite Sirah, this wine is really cool. Complex berry profile across the palate with a rich mouthfeel, this is a great one to drink now or leave for a few years to see how it develops. Very cool. — a month ago
Wow. Mark’s Lauren Vineyard chard is always my favorite, but this 2008 is absolutely unreal. Incredible nose of honeysuckle, white flowers, lemon peel, and a touch of vanilla, the mouthfeel on this is unbelievable. Impeccable balance, with a finish that lasts well over a minute, this is one of the best chardonnays I’ve had in a long time. Just awesome. — 10 days ago
