Saxum James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red 2016


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Soaring aromatics of cherries and California sage, a beautiful, lush mouthfeel of red and black fruits, and a finish that is perhaps 3 miles long consisting of baking spice and fennel (maybe even 4 miles, it's hard to say for sure). Fresh and lively, yet rich and pleasurable, it's the ultimate combo.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red is beautiful, reflecting this vintage's synergy with Grenache, wafting from the glass with notes of wild cherries, kirsch, spring flowers and licorice. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and firm, with a deep core and chewy, stony structure that is going to demand some patience. The finish is juicy and mouthwatering. The 2016 is a blend of 55% Grenache, 24% Mataro, 13% Syrah and 8% Counoise, and it's maturing in 61% new puncheons, 26% amphorae and the balance in used wood.
