Saxum Paderewski Vineyard 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Bottled in April (as were all the early release 2018s), the 2018 Paderewski Vineyard is 44% Syrah, 22% Mataro, 15% Zinfandel, 9% Grenache, and the rest Tempranillo and Viognier. Deep purple, it has a wonderful bouquet of blueberries, wild strawberries, ground pepper, orange blossom, licorice, and violets. Beautifully textured, full-bodied, and both rich and elegant, it's a stunning wine to enjoy over the coming 15 years or more.
The 2018 Paderewski Vineyard is a blend of 44% Syrah, 22% Mataro, 15% Zinfandel, 9% Grenache, 6% Tempranillo and 4% Viognier. Purple-black in color, it explodes to violet and lilac perfume with a core of black and blue pie fruits, sweet spices and aniseed. The full-bodied palate explodes with perfumed fruits, supported by very firm, ripe tannins, and it has a good juicy uplift on the long finish.
