Extremely limited release from Saxum.  100 points Robert Parker:  "Utter perfection, and one of the most profound Rhone Ranger wines I have ever tasted... As with many prodigious wines, the extraordinary freshness, purity, equilibrium, and singularity of this effort is breathtaking. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary, incredibly pure, all enveloping, intense, sweet nose of black raspberries, kirsch, spring flowers, spice box, and pepper. Full-bodied with not a hard edge to be found, it is stunningly concentrated with unreal purity, a voluptuous texture, and remarkable freshness for a wine of such power, depth, and concentration." 98 points Wine Spectator "Highly Recommended" and #1 in Top 100 Wines of 2010:  "An amazing wine, dense, rich and layered, offering a mix of power and finesse, with concentrated dark berry fruit, mineral, sage, herb and cedar notes that are pure, intense, focused and persistent. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2018." 97 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: Inky purple color. Spectacular nose combines black and blue fruit preserves, cola, smoky Indian spices and potpourri, with a vibrant mineral underpinning. Juicy, vibrant and focused, offering sweet boysenberry and blueberry flavors and suave floral pastille and allspice qualities. Deeply concentrated but lithe, with superb finishing clarity and a spicy, endless finish."

Great follow up to the Flor de Pingus. Sweeter dark fruits but not over the top, well integrated, perfect mid-pallet and the tannins are still prominent at the finish. This is good, real good.

This Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah blend is the first wine I consider truly perfect that I've ever tasted. It starts with a beautiful nose of raspberry syrup and creme de cassis with a palate of full of the same as well as other dark fruit with a hint of cedar and a pinch of spice and vanilla. It utterly envelops the mouth from start to finish and raps it in a beautiful blanket of harmony and balance. The finish lasts upward of 2 minutes. It's perfect
