We switched things up a little from the 2014 vintage with Grenache taking the lead (and it will probably continue to be this way). It is an open book of bright, juicy, red fruits. Raspberry, and maybe a little strawberry, with a lovely briary dark side to it. Maybe some licorice and fennel coming from the Mourvedre. What I really enjoy is that every time I have tasted this wine it has been different. Sometimes showing the darker Mourvedre side, sometimes the juicy Grenache side. In a word, it's a dynamic wine, a real treat to enjoy. Simply following it slowly throughout your meal is a joy. From one sip to the next it will develop new facets that you hadn't noticed in the previous sip. Give it a year or two in the cellar before popping. The best is definitely yet to come.

Wine AdvocateThe newest vineyard in the Saxum lineup, the 2015 G2 Vineyard contains 56% Grenache and 44% Mourvèdre. Sporting a medium to deep garnet-purple color, it leaps from the glass with an exuberant red currant and Bing cherry nose, complemented by notes of dried Provence herbs, lavender, orange peel and black pepper. Full-bodied with a firm, grainy texture and tons of freshness, it has lovely spice and herbal layers on the very long finish.

Wine SpectatorThis has torque to spare, but there's also richness and polish, plus black licorice, smoky pepper beef, currant and crushed stone accents that build power and depth toward bold tannins. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2019 through 2027. 585 cases made.
