-  100 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: „Pure perfection in a glass, the 2019 G2 Vineyard checks in as 53% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 19% Graciano, and the rest Carignan and Syrah. An incredible array of blackberries, ground pepper, violets, and herbes de Provence all emerge from the glass, and it’s full-bodied, deep, and concentrated, yet as weightless as they come. It shows more gamey, exotic notes with time in the glass, it’s perfectly balanced, and it’s just an incredible wine from this reference point estate. Drink bottles any time over the coming 10-15 years.“ 2021-2036

One of California’s unquestionably superstar estates is Heather and Justin Smith’s Saxum Vineyards, and you won’t find any finer examples of Rhône variety wines anywhere in the world. The proprietors of James Berry Vineyard, located in the cooler Willow Creek District of Paso Robles, the Smiths have seen incredible changes over the past decade, and they’ve traded their small, old-fashioned, yet perfectly adequate cellar for a brand-new cave and state of the art winemaking facility. And while changes of this magnitude can often result in hiccups in either the style or quality of the wines, that’s certainly not the case here. I think the wines have never been better, and given the scores I’ve awarded in the past, that’s saying something. Today, the Smiths release multiple cuvées, and while the focus in the past might have been the estate James Berry Vineyard, the portfolio includes numerous new vineyard sources and cuvées, most focusing on single vineyards and even specific blocks inside of a vineyard. This report looks at the 2018s and 2019s, and in a nutshell, these wines epitomize what I consider greatness in wine; the ability to offer both hedonistic and intellectual pleasure; intensity and richness without heaviness or any sensation of weight; singular profiles; and the ability to improve with bottle age. In addition, the purity and precision this estate can achieve are incredible, and certainly, many estates and winemakers in Paso Robles need to be tasting these wines to understand why they’re great and what is possible from these incredible limestone soils. As a critic, it’s always a challenge to try and understand why wines show differently and why one estate can produce brilliant wines and others struggle. Given the prodigious wines the Smiths release year in and year out from different vineyards (and now even from different winemaking facilities), it’s become increasingly apparent that the quality coming from Saxum is due to the genius of Justin Smith. After being lucky enough to taste these wines every year for well over a decade now, I can say that no one in California does Rhône varieties and blends better. I’ve written this many times in the past, but I’ll say it again, this is one of the few mailing lists worth being on.

- 94+ Punkte, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (03/22) Erin Brooks: „A blend of 53% Grenache, 21% Mataro, 19% Graciano, 4% Carignan and 3% Syrah, the 2019 G2 Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and scents of cherries and blueberries with touches of garrigue and mint chocolate. Although it's a touch aromatically shy, the medium-bodied palate's generous fruits are on full display, supported by fresh acidity and silty tannins, and its boldly flavored finish suggests it will offer more nuance after a few years' maturation in bottle.“ 2023-2038

- 96 Punkte, VINOUS, Josh Raynolds: „Saturated ruby. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of Chambord, blueberry, licorice and pungent flowers; a white pepper element
adds energetic lift. Seamless and deeply concentrated, offering an array of alluringly sweet red and blue fruit, Moroccan spice, mocha and floral pastille flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Finishes impressively long, precise and sappy, with intensely spicy thrust and steadily building tannins.“ 2025-2035

Notizen des Weinguts: NOTES FROM JUSTIN: I'm not going to hype this wine up much because I think Jeb already said enough. These 2019 wines have a little something for everyone, which is why I think I like them so much. Lifted, fresh aromatics of sage and spice and fruit. Along with lots of rich California fruit, deep textures, smooth tannins and lively acids that keep it all harmonizing so well. These days there are so many great wines out there that have one or the other. Rich, smooth tannins, or fresh, spice/fruit driven aromatics. I find it rare to have both, and frankly, that's my holy grail. What really piques my interest.
