Cheryle & I stopped by Saxum & the James Berry Vineyard recently.  Paso-saxum7It was great to spend some time with winemaker Justin Smith again.  He certainly has evolved into quite the superstar through his incredible Saxum wines.

I must say, tasting through his 2011’s, they are really some of the best I have ever had from this winery.  His 2011 “Bone Rock” was the single most memorable wine from Justin Smith I have had in all these years.  The 2011’s are LONG….have great length with amazing minerality & buoyancy. 

Wine lovers will also go gaga with the 2012’s too.  There is really alot to look forward to from this top echelon winery & uber-talented winemaker.

Thanks Justin…..for a great visit!
