The 2007 Broken Stones (71% Syrah, 18% Grenache, and 11% Mourvedre) is a gorgeously seamless wine with an inky/blue/purple color, a tight but promising nose of blue and black fruits, incense, charcoal, and extraordinarily pure black raspberry and blackberry fruit, fabulous concentration in the mouth, velvety, well-integrated tannins, and a mind-bogglingly long finish. This wine will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15 or more. (RP) 96+
A full-blown tour de force, pure, ripe, rich and focused, delivering blackberry, huckleberry, boysenberry and spicy mineral notes that are dense without being heavy. Layered and intricate, this is smooth, detailed and long on the finish. (JL)
The 2007 Saxum Broken Stones is a blend of 71% Syrah, 18% Grenache and 11% Mourvédre. The wine has fantastic precision and poise on the nose with tight, firm aromatics of toasted oak, sawdust, cedar and smoky notes that are backed up by serious blackberry and cassis fruit. The palate is medium to full bodied with a firm, dense character, impressive balance and a clean, long, rich finish. While there’s a fair bit of oak showing at the moment, I’m a fan and think that this has the fruit and structure to handle it. 95+
Saturated ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet displays boysenberry, blueberry, smoked meat, pungent floral oils and strong minerality. Lush, creamy and sweet, offering incisive dark berry flavors and a strong undertone of Asian spices. The mineral note builds with air and carries into the finish, which is strikingly pure, focused and persistent. As rich as this wine is, I find no excess weight and a very firm finish. (JR)
