Saxum G2 Vineyard Red 2015
Wine AdvocateThe newest vineyard in the Saxum lineup, the 2015 G2 Vineyard contains 56% Grenache and 44% MourvÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ¨dre. 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 MourvÃÂ¨dre. Best from 2019 through 2027. 585 cases made.
