Producer notes: "72% Syrah, 10% Mataro, 9% Graciano, 6% Grenache, 3% Roussanne. The nose is cedar and earth with blackberry and violets in the background and plenty of black pepper (that pepper is coming from the 27% stem inclusion). The mouth is round and polished with no hard edges and excellent fruit purity (thanks to the 34% concrete amphora I suspect). It is round and full, with a dense, tannic spine that needs some time to relax and strut its stuff. The finish is where the extended aging really shines through. It’s very concentrated, yet flows on and on, without feeling heavy or burdensome. That’s what makes Saxum Saxum. Weight and texture without heaviness. With a focus of purity. 312 cases produced. Alcohol 16.1%."
