2017 Saxum James Berry Vineyard White| Willow Creek District AVA, Paso Robles California 750ml


55% Grenache Blanc 32% Roussanne 8% Chenin Blanc 5% Petit Manseng

This wine was a long time coming! We have had Roussanne planted here since 1997, but wanted to bring in some extra brightness that Roussanne can often lack, so we planted Grenache Blanc on an East facing section of the Rocket Block hill. This wine is seriously structured yet a complexly aromatic white. Like a classic White Burgundy, but with a California twist...My hunch paid off, and the combo of the rich waxy Roussanne is cut and lifted with some bright citrusy Grenache blanc...What emerged is a seriously structured yet complexly aromatic white. More flint and mineral on the nose than you might expect from a California white, but the mouthfeel is rich and focused at the same time. I'm quite happy with it...312 cases produce. | Justin Smith for Saxum

Starting with the white from one of the unquestionably great estates in wine today, the 2017 James Berry Vineyard White offers a concentrated, richer style as well as classy notes of caramelized tangerines, toasted spice, orange blossom, and brioche. I love its texture and richness, and it's beautifully balanced. | 93 points, Jeb Dunnuck for
