Wine Advocate-Parker :
2014 was Sauxm's first vintage of the G2 vineyard. The 2016 G2 Vineyard is a blend of 47% Grenache, 40% Mataro and 13% Tannat. It was made with 6% whole cluster and aged 19 months in several vessels, including 50% foudres and 30% new oak. Medium to deep ruby in the glass, the nose explodes with sour cherries, cranberries, dried black cherries, garrigue, scorched earth and tar aromas with dried flowers and citrus peel coming through with time. The palate is lovely, medium to full-bodied and intense with bright, lifted fruits, a grainy frame, mouthwatering freshness and a long, nuanced finish. 788 cases produced.
