International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 135

($45; 74% syrah, 24% grenache and 2% mourvedre) Ruby-red. Spicy boysenberry and kirsch on the nose, with subtle baking spice and musky underbrush adding complexity. Fleshy red and dark berry flavors are plump and sweet but reined in by zesty acidity, which enlivens the long, juicy finish. The spice notes linger impressively and contribute an impression of vivacity. But this needs some time in bottle.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 172

The 2005 Broken Stones, a blend of 74% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and the rest Mourvedre, is a beauty. Notes of licorice, forest floor, pepper, spice box, and loads of black and red fruits jump from the glass as well as saturate the palate. This full-bodied, opulent wine has crisp acidity, some heady alcohol, and loads of flavor, depth, and richness. It is a savory wine to drink now and over the next 7-10 years.

Blue, red fruits jump from the glass. Wafting aromas of mild flowers, licorice and damp forest floor. Very long and smooth. A beautiful Syrah blend

Excellent aromatic fruits on the nose. Good texture but not as smooth on the finish as I was expecting. Or at least not as smooth as the other saxum I have tried. Still a very good GSM blend.

trade mark mineral finish for Saxum, wine of the night amongst some Paso Robles heavy hitters

Strongest Saxum I can remember for some time as I have been mostly trying to work through the 02 and before. While I liked them, clearly Justin had refined his wine making as he came in to the 05 vintage and had started making some great juice. This was terrific, perhaps a little big for the meal (roast beef), but everyone at the table said we should have changed the food, not the wine... Big, bold and full of depth. A real winner.
