Saxum Vineyards

James Berry Vineyard White Blend 2018

Shay A

I waited as long as I could to finally try but gave in. 66 Grenache Blanc/28 roussanne/6 Chenin Blanc. Inaugural vintage for the Saxum white.

As a fan of white Rhône style wines, I expected the youth to show in an overly savory/waxy way, but I was pleasantly surprised how open this was. Pop and pour. Medium gold in the glass. Classical roussanne notes of orange marmalade and apricot, alongside salted almonds and yellow fruits. Gorgeously opulent on the palate but the Chenin gives it a spine of acidity to keep it dancing. Honey-roasted cashews, honeycomb, lemon cream, underripe pineapple and a little beeswax.

This seems fairly open for business, so no regrets on opening. Little bit of air and it’s ready to rock.

Sine Qua Non.

Lightmotif Roussanne Blend 2014

This California white blend is very tasty, and is drinking beautifully now.

Deep gold in color.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity.

Showing red and green apples, light oak, Mediterranean spices, bitter herbs, earth, light vanilla, caramel and black pepper.

Long finish with almonds and limes.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Crisp and engaging.

This 9-year-old still has lots of acidity to take it another 5 to 10 years. A Delicious wine.

Robert Parker 97 points.

Good by itself as a sipping wine.

A blend of 47% Roussanne, 21% Chardonnay, 14% Petite Manseng, 11% Viognier and 7% Marsanne. Aged for 19 months in concrete eggs, French oak and stainless steel vats.

15.4% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Petit Manseng 2020

My first Virginia wine. Petit Manseng (and a small amount of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris) from different vineyards around Madison, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in central Virginia. Rich, creamy. Baked apple and tropical fruit notes. Great with food — 7 months ago
