Saxum Terry Hoage Vineyard 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Jeb DunnuckA similar blend to the 2015, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard (48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre) is a deeper, richer wine that offers sensational notes of blackberries, currants, pepper, crushed violets and hints of graphite. Deep, rich and layered, yet light on its feet as well as elegant and graceful, this sensational 2014 has sweet tannin, good acidity and a big finish. Give bottles a year or two (it’s great today as well) and enjoy through 2028.
Wine AdvocateBlended of 48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% MourvÃ¨dre, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and slightly reticent nose of red currants and raspberry leaves with suggestions of black pepper, fragrant earth and mossy bark, with a hint of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, tightly wound and with fairly restrained, earthy/savory flavors, it has beautifully ripe tannins and a nice long refreshing finish.
Wine SpectatorShows depth and torque, offering dark raspberry and rose petal aromas and densely structured smoky plum, pepper and mineral flavors that build toward big but polished tannins. Syrah, Grenache and MourvÃÂ¨dre. Best from 2019 through 2027. 345 cases made.
