-  98 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: „The 2019 Paderewski Vineyard is incredibly complex, with loads of red and blue fruits as well as black licorice, orange blossom, and flowers. This beauty is full-bodied, has a layered, seamless mouthfeel, no hard edges, and as I wrote in notes after tasting this, it’s a killer wine.“

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.

- 95 Punkte, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (03/22) Erin Brooks: „The 2019 Paderewski Vineyard is a bright, perfumed blend of co-fermented fruit: 53% Syrah, 18% Mataro, 11% Zinfandel, 8% Graciano, 7% Tempranillo and 3% Viognier. Medium ruby, the nose is bursting with wild berries, blood orange and floral aromas. The medium-bodied, finely textured palate is notably restrained, fresh and minerally, a departure from the bolder styles of warmer vintages in the last decade, and it finishes long and uplifted. Drink it on the earlier side for its fragrant, pretty fruits.“ Drink Date: 2022-2037

- 97 Punkte, VINOUS, Josh Raynolds: „Saturated magenta. Highly perfumed, spice-accented red and blue fruits, botanical herbs, incense, potpourri and a hint of
smokiness on the nose. Displays vibrant, spice-tinged blueberry, cherry cola, cassis and exotic spice flavors and seamless texture. Turns firmer and echoes the spice and floral notes on the strikingly persistent finish, which features harmonious tannins and lingering blue fruit character." 2026-2036

Notizen des Weinguts: NOTES FROM JUSTIN: Can I really lead off each review with "This is my favorite (fill in the blank) I've ever made!"? Yes I can. Best Rewski yet. And yes that 3% Viognier does make a huge difference! If you like our Paderewski Vineyard, you will not be disappointed with this wine. We have finally bottled up some of our amazing 2019s. I say finally because this year it was quite an ordeal to import the glass from Italy due to ports that are completely jammed up. After waiting a few extra weeks we received our fancy new embossed bottles. They look pretty sweet, if I do say so myself, but worth the hassle? Yes it was. They are SEXY. Speaking of sexy, have we talked about the 2019s yet? This vintage has really taken me by surprise. I admit that early on I was not overly excited by the 19s. I thought they were over shadowed by the showy, dark, intense 2018s. But these 19s are like a slow burn that just keeps building and building. Every time I tasted them as they aged in barrel they have become better and better. At this point I would rank this vintage right up there in the top 3 vintages. What I love about them is that they have a bit of everything. Spice? Check! Rich fruit? Check! Smooth, mouth coating tannins? Check, check and check! Not only does this vintage have a lot going on, it is also approachable in its youth. Like the 2017s were/are. Here's the 19s.... approachable tannins like the 17s, spice like the 11s, intensity like the 07s and 09s, and beautiful aromatics like the 15s. Best of all the worlds? Maybe!?!
