    The Saxum James Berry Vineyard 2021 is a distinctive expression of skill and passion by renowned winemaker Justin Smith of Saxum Winery. Located in the celebrated Paso Robles Willow Creek AVA, this wine is a testament to the unique terroir of the James Berry Vineyard, well-known for producing robust and character-rich wines under the Saxum label.

    This 2021 vintage showcases a blend dominated by 53% Grenache, complemented by 31% Mataro, with smaller proportions of Syrah, Counoise, and Carignan. It stands out in Saxum’s range, particularly for its Grenache-led profile, offering a fresh perspective compared to the more typical Syrah-dominated releases. The wine presents a rich palette of color—deep red hues that promise a complex tasting experience.

    Upon opening a bottle of the Saxum James Berry Vineyard 2021, one is immediately greeted with a vibrant aroma profile. Notes of red and blue fruits create a welcoming bouquet, enhanced by subtle peppery nuances that add depth and intrigue. These aromatics suggest a wine that has gracefully embraced the cooler, dryer conditions of the 2021 vintage, yielding an aroma that is as enchanting as it is promising.

    The flavor profile of this wine is where it truly shines. The initial palate is met with a medium to full-bodied texture that’s both pure and incredibly elegant. The fruit flavors are pronounced yet balanced, with a freshness reflective of the cooler year, yet there is no lack of concentration or texture. This balance between fresh, lifted notes and deep, rich flavors is a hallmark of this vintage’s unique character. The tannins are soft and supple, making this wine enjoyable in its youth but also well-suited for graceful aging.

    Critics have noted the Saxum James Berry Vineyard 2021 for its outstanding balance and length, earning it high praise and a rating of 95-97+ from wine expert Jeb Dunnuck. Such acclaims underscore its quality and the expert craftsmanship of Justin Smith. The wine’s elegance and depth are highlighted as it mirrors the freshness of the vintage while delivering an ample depth and richness that Saxum wines are celebrated for.

    This vintage is notably versatile, enjoyable soon after its release yet poised to age beautifully. As Justin Smith notes, while the 2021 vintage initially seemed subdued, it has since revealed its complexities and virtues, much like the revered 2007 vintage. It offers a freshness and focus typical of cooler years, yet does not shy away from showing great concentration and texture courtesy of the dry conditions experienced during the growing season.

    In summary, Saxum James Berry Vineyard 2021 is not just another wine; it’s a narrative of its year, crafted meticulously by Saxum Vineyards. Whether you’re near or far, seeking to explore the brilliance of Saxum wines, or curious about the offerings of James Berry Vineyard, this wine stands as a beacon of quality and enjoyment. Priced at $135 upon release, it represents both an indulgence for the present and a worthy addition to any cellar, promising delight now through 2040. This Saxum release, like its predecessors, not only reflects the excellence of the vineyard but also the commitment of Saxum Winery to create profound and memorable wines.
