The 2012 Heart Stone Vineyard is 43% Syrah, 41% Grenache and 16% Mourvedre that was aged mostly in concrete (the ’11 was aged 100% in concrete) yet also saw some new and neutral puncheons. Fermented with 40% whole clusters, it’s a big, burly effort that has beautiful creme de cassis, black raspberry, crushed violets, vanilla bean and exotic flower-like qualities all emerging from the glass. It too has a structured feel, with high, yet ripe tannin, so short-term cellaring is also advised here. (JD)
Opaque purple. Smoky, deeply pitched black raspberry, gingerbread and floral pastille scents show excellent clarity. Sweet and palate-staining, with intense red and dark berry liqueur flavors stretching out slowly. Finishes with outstanding thrust and length, chewy tannins coming up quickly to add grip. (JR) 92+
Offers a potent expression of loamy earth-infused dark berry, sage, bay leaf, espresso, black tea and black licorice flavors, all deep and persistent, cloaked in chewy tannins. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2016 through 2028. (JL)
