2003 Saxum James Berry Rocket Block Syrah - 98 pts!
The 2003 Rocket Block James Berry Vineyard 50% Grenache 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah is truly great stuff. All of the Grenache is aged in larger demi-muids with the Syrah and Mourvedre kept in smaller barrels. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a big sweet kirsch liqueur creme de cassis lavender licorice and pepper-scented bouquet. Reminiscent of a Chateauneuf du Pape with a New World twist it possesses a fabulous texture beautiful purity and a seamless voluptuous personality. It should age beautifully for a decade assuming purchasers can keep their hands off of it that long. 260 cases made. RP
