Saxum Paderwski Blend 2011

The 'Rewski Vineyard is in a slightly warmer microclimate, and the resulting wine definitely leans on the dark fruit side. Saxum utilized a good amount of Tempranillo and Mourvedre in this blend, with less Syrah then typical. What always blows me away about this vineyard is how floral it is. Ripe peaches are consistently found in the nose, along with honeysuckle and roses. It's as if this wine had a large percentage of Viognier hiding in it. However, on the pallet it has tons of dark fruit..... think black cherries dipped in bitter dark chocolate. The finish is classic 'Rewski, with long echoes of chalky dusty tannins. Blend: 34% Zinfandel, 31% Mourvedre, 16% Tempranillo, 10% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah
