Booker Vineyard Syrah Mourvédre

2017 Vintage. 15.8% Alcohol. 76% Syrah, 24% Mataro. Saxum was the call for our Saturday night zoom meeting theme. All the rest of our Saxum is in offsite storage with this 2017 being the only one in the home cellar so it was a baby killing or no Saxum. It was very good but needs time to develop beyond primary grapyness. Even in its youth, an excellent wine. Hold. — 6 days ago

Paderewski Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2012

A perfect summer evening in Michigan, the 2012 version of this wine from Justin is drinking beautifully right now (the expression on Vanessa’s face notwithstanding - pretty sure that’s for something I likely said!). What the wine has lost in terms of primary fruit it has gained in secondary flavors. Still zin-driven in the profile, but the morvedre and tempranillo in the blend is coming through much moreso than the last time I opened one of these in 2017. Not convinced this is going to get better, so if you have this in your cellar, I recommend opening it soon and enjoy. — a month ago

I was surprised at the approachability of this immediately on opening. Outmatched by the Saxum but it was closer than I’d anticipated it’d be. — 2 months ago

Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2010

Definitely the WOTN. Had opened it up a couple of days ago and it was still drinking beautifully. This vintage was 100% syrah - I think that’s a little unusual for Bone Rock - but it’s terrific. Drank well the first night, so this one doesn’t need a whole lot of airtime to start enjoying. — 20 days ago

G2 Vineyard Mourvèdre-Grenache Blend

This might be the best young Saxum I’ve had. Rich and velvety texture with raspberry, black cherry and cocoa nibs. Refreshing acidity and a whiff of smoke on the slight tannins help balance and keep things intriguing. — 20 days ago

James Berry Vineyard Grenache Blend 2011

Good fruit. Time to drink I think but it still needs to open a bit. Some good dark fruit with wintergreen present. Trying another glass tonight to see how it evolves. — 20 days ago

Wine of the month for me so far, first dinner at a restaurant with friends in a long while, this was a fitting bottle to mark the occasion. No decant required, just a chiller and little air and it was 🎶 — 2 months ago
