The 2016 Heartstone is another sensational wine from this vintage, and it's also one of the more upfront and approachable in the lineup from Smith. Based on 51% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 13% Mataro, and the rest Petite Sirah and Touriga Nacional, it offers a complex bouquet of black raspberries, Christmas spice, herbes de Provence, and blood orange. Beautifully textured, seamless, and silky, this beauty doesn't put a foot wrong, has no hard edges, and is just a glorious drink.
Deep ruby. Mineral-tinged dark berry, star anise, cola, licorice and floral oil qualities on the explosively perfumed nose. Deeply concentrated, expansive flavors of black currant, cherry liqueur, spicecake, smoked meat and candied flowers are complicated by licorice candy and bitter chocolate notes that build on the back half. Sweet, sappy and focused on the floral-driven finish, which shows outstanding delineation and youthfully chewy tannins that build steadily and harmoniously. (JR)
A distinctive, eclectic style, offering a potpourri of aromas and flavors, from potent blackberry and licorice to fruitcake spices, black olive and crushed stone. Builds tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. (TF)
