Saxum Vineyards Proprietary Red Blend Paderewski Vineyard 2021 750ml
The 2021 Paderewski checks in as 48% Syrah, 19% Mataro, 17% Zinfandel, and the rest Graciano. It’s a brilliant bottle of wine, offering loads of ripe, purple fruits, flowers, Jolly Rancher candy, and pepper. It’s full-bodied, has a rounded, sexy, opulent mouthfeel, and one heck of a finish. As satisfying as they come, its upfront, hedonistic style is balanced beautifully by the cooler, elegant style of the 2021 vintage. It’s up there with the finest vintages of this cuvée and will put a smile on your face any time over the coming 10-15 years or so.
