Here is the outlier. I mean, it is still a Saxum through and through, but let's look at the factors involved here.... Petite Sirah as the lead, with Tempranillo, (gasp!) Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel as the bandmates, and aged in a bit of American Oak? WTH is going on around here you might ask. I'm not quite sure, but I like the outcome. We tip our hat to old school California wine. This might not be for the faint of heart, but it is not nearly as beastly as the 2016 version. This wine comes across as civilized, if you can imagine that. I guess what I am trying to say is we had a bit of fun with this wine, and I am really enjoying the outcome.

Dark purple. Intense, smoke-accented dark berry liqueur, exotic spice, incense, violet and licorice aromas show outstanding clarity and pick up hints of espresso and cola with air. Deeply concentrated, mineral-accented black/blue fruit, floral pastille and bitter chocolate flavors become livelier and take on black cardamom and mocha nuances on the back half. Broad and youthfully chewy in texture, showing strong tension and finishing with impressive floral- and mineral-dominated persistence and dusty tannins that lend solid closing grip.
