2021 Saxum, Paderewski Vineyard, Paso Robles 1x75cl

JD97
Blend: 48% Syrah, 19% Mataro, 17% Zinfandel, 9% Tempranillo, 7% Graciano Vintage production: 539 cases Travel just west of Paso Robles, and you will find Paderewski Vineyard: 95 acres of undulating,... steep, limestone rich hillsides within 570 rural, spring-fed acres. In the early 1900’s, this vineyard was cherished and farmed by world-renowned pianist, Polish diplomat, and vintner, Ignacy Jan Paderewski. Fast forward a century and in 2004, Bill and Liz Armstrong (Epoch Estate) became the stewards of this amazing piece of property. They tasked Saxum's own Justin Smith with the mission to bring this historic vineyard back to life. Home to intense earth that bears little resemblance to typical California soils, this vineyard is filled with lean, rocky, and calcareous soil profiles. After carefully pairing the hillsides with their respective wine grape variety, the vineyard is planted with Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah, Tempranillo, Zinfandel, Grenache Blanc, and Picpoul Blanc. These vines are mostly grafted onto Phylloxera resistant Native American rootstock with the exception of a few blocks of Syrah and Grenache vines planted on their own rootstock. Creating a patchwork of vines, the vineyard’s clone selections were carefully chosen to create the perfect match between soil and vine. In addition, the vineyard blocks were meticulously laid out based on their unique exposures, soil attributes, and mesoclimates. Today, you are able to taste the synergy created by the methodical planting decisions made in 2004, as each block is happily producing fruit specific to their exact location.

If you ask any of Napa's top winemakers which varietal they are most excited about, this is the one. Only fruit from a truly brilliant vineyard makes the cut, and for the High Fidelity, David Abreu reserved a parcel of Cab Franc from his 'First Growth' Madrona Ranch Vineyard in western St. Helena. When the same fruit goes into his renowned Abreu Vineyards Madrona Ranch Proprietary Red, you know it's of seriously high quality. Winemaker Chris Tynan masterfully blends this Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a splash of Petit Verdot from Cliff Lede's Twin Peaks Estate Vineyard in Stags Leap District, and his High Fidelity 2018 is absolutely singing from the word go. As Jeb Dunnuck says, "It's already hard to resist", yet it has everything in place to cellar gracefully for another 10-15 years.

2018 Downstream Box Set (3x75cl + 1x150cl), Paso Robles 5x75cl

JD98VM98
Blend: 38% Zinfandel, 30% Mataro, 16% Grenache, 6% Counoise, 6% Graciano, 3% Syrah, 1% Petite Sirah Vintage production: 600 cases Founded in 2016, Downstream Wines is the collective brainchild of... Saxum Vineyards owner and winemaker Justin Smith, the late-great oenologist Philippe Cambie, and their mutual friend, the visionary Sasha Verhage. Together, they crafted a wine that will be remembered forever as watershed moment in Paso Robles, and California as a whole. When it comes to pushing the boundaries of greatness, their jaw-dropping Downstream is a magical wine. In the running as the greatest expression of Zinfandel ever produced, it's a peerless example of Cambie's unrivalled blending skills and Smith's rockstar winemaking. It also carries a real poignance as to honour the legacy of Cambie, following his passing in 2021, production was ended. Cambie's work in Châteauneuf-du-Pape is legendary, none more so than his multiple 100-point scores at Clos St. Jean. He had long desired to work with Justin in Paso Robles, focusing on 'heritage' Zinfandel. They chose the old vines of the Dusi Vineyard, planted in 1945, complimenting them with a carefully selected blend of varietals from sites including Saxum's own James Berry Vineyard.  The result is a taste and style that can only come from California: rich, intense, hedonistic, with an underlying elegance and energy. It's indicative of the forward thinking and ground breaking approach that's at its strongest in Paso Robles. Downstream is already a highly desirable and ultra-rare gem, and will be a treasured prize among collectors of California's finest wines who are lucky enough to find some.

2019 Aperture, Oliver Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley 1x75cl

RP98
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 387 cases Coming from the custom vineyard that the legendary viticulture specialist Phil Freese planted in 1989 to showcase one of the best sites... in California, this Cabernet always demonstrates a remarkable sense of site. These vines grow on a gravelly plateau that creates well concentrated fruit that holds remarkable acidity and vibrant freshness. he grapes are hand-harvested and delivered to the winery within hours of being picked. Every cluster is methodically and obsessively sorted through 3 sets of sorting tables before being optically sorted to specific preferences. The berries then cold soak for 4-7 days with minimal air incorporation, allowing for complex colour and tannin extraction. Native yeast carry out cooler fermentations to preserve the unique aromas of the terroir. Air and temperature are controlled throughout the 14-24 day fermentation, and extended maceration is determined lot by lot to maintain the fine line between full extraction and keeping an elegant, silky texture. Wines go through malolactic fermentation naturally in barrel and are aged (sur-lie) for 22 months.
