Saxum Winemaker Does it Again

The 2011 Epoch Red Blend sees a change in vineyard makeup, but not in quality!  The “Estate” Red wine is a blend of two vineyards (54 % Paderewski & 46% Catapult).  The wine is a blend of 38% Syrah, 24% Grenache, 21% Mourvedre, 10% Tempranillo  & 7% Counoise.   Winemaker of year (2010) Justin Smith (Saxum) who received some 100 point ratings, knocked this one out of the park!  The 2011 Red Blend offers great value for its quality!

Tons of intensity on impact.  Gobs of bright, ripe fruit greet you on the nose.  The palate is coated with lush plum, chocolate, black stone fruits.  Lush and full in body, this wine will please connoisseurs and beginners alike!  I call this a new-worldish red that will show the French that we are for real!  Very vibrant from start to finish, this wine will go well a rack of lamb, hearty stew and of course great cheese plate.  Limited production.

Robert Parker 92 Points: ”Looking at the 2011s from bottle, and always a rock-solid bottle of wine and a great entry into the style here, the 2011 Estate Blend offers up plenty of ripe plum, licorice, crushed flowers and violet-like nuances as well as a medium to full-bodied, balanced profile in the mouth. Showing the cooler vintage with its overall freshness and focus, it’s beautifully done and should drink nicely for 3-5 years, Drink now-2018.“
