Wine of the Year 2010

Wine Spectator recently released their list of Top 100 Wines of 2010. Topping the list is the 2007 Saxum by the James Berry Vineyard in Paso Robles, a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah grapes. WS gave the wine a score of 98 and the following tasting notes: “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.” Each bottle retails for $67 and only 950 cases were made.
