Tasting Note:March 26, 2016

First time trying Saxum and this was a real treat! Wine was a bright ruby red. Very clean and softened up since we cracked it, definitely had a touch of red fruit. We were really surprised by the moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) on this 2004. Moderate plus body with an initial dark fruit attack that complete covered the front of the palate. Very well integrated and silky smooth. Long lingering finish. Great body and tannins makes this wine seem like a 2009 or 2010. Very enjoyable, wish we had more!

This wine is a GSM blend comprised of 75% Syrah, 22% Grenache and 3% Mourvedre.
