Saxum "Rocket Block" Paso Robles 2003

Saturated red/purple.

Vinturi - deep, saucy, nose with nice oak spice lift - black raspberry/earth/shoe polish.

Dense with a textural sweetness that is well-buffered by moderate acid/tannin synergy. Undertone of fresh peppermint. Alcohol (16.6%) barely noticed. Loaded, but is also refined, though not particularly complex. Whatever, I could sit and drink a bunch of this. RFG.

$75. 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah.
