Saxum "Rocket Block" 2016, 750ml


1 in stock.
The 2016 Rocket Block James Berry Vineyard, a blend of 59% Grenache, 28% Mataro, 10% Counoise and 3% Syrah, is an incredibly layered, nuanced wine. It was made with 17% whole cluster and aged 31 months in 100% new oak. Medium to deep ruby, the nose offers a laundry list of aromas: black cherry jam, cured meats, pink peppercorn, dried cranberries, pomegranate, red berry jam and nuances of blood orange, amaro, cinnamon stick and earth. The medium to full-bodied palate is just as layered, with a gently grainy frame and lip-smacking freshness to enliven the long, perfumed finish. 240 cases were made." RP 97
