Saxum James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock Syrah 2013


SKU 24644


You know how bullish I am on these 13s (I think about everyone is, actually), well, I haven't changed my tune since I wrote to you last. I am still really digging them. As always, these wines will need a few years of slumber, but they will reward you greatly. Juicy rich fruit, tons of sweet tannins, and incredible complexity. The depth is really what gets me going on them, ever changing layers that reveal new aspects of the wine with each sip. It definitely makes drinking them a joy.

Wine AdvocateA co-fermented blend of Syrah and a splash of Roussanne, the inky colored 2013 Syrah James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock reveals a heavenly bouquet of Hermitage-like dark fruits, violets, crushed rocks and seared meats. Big, rich and structured, it has phenomenal purity and elegance given its size and delivers a big dose of tannin on the huge finish. A wine that could flirt with perfection, it will demand short-term cellaring and keep for two decades.
