International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 135

($55; 49% syrah, 33% grenache and 18% mourvedre) Deep ruby. Room-filling bouquet of red and black fruits, Asian spices, fresh violet and lavender and suave vanillin oak. Vibrant, palate-staining raspberry and blackberry flavors deliver sweet depth, with zesty minerality adding energy. Silky tannins slowly build on the long, spicy finish. Seamless and elegant; this is more open than the Broken Stones today.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 177

The northern Rhone-like 2005 Heart Stone Vineyard is a blend of 44% Syrah, 33% Grenache, and 23% Mourvedre. A meaty nose with roasted Provencal herbs, cassis, blackberry, licorice, and smoke emerges from this Hermitage-styled effort. Structured and firm, it will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and should evolve effortlessly for a decade or more. The bottled 2005s are all performing well.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Offers subtlety and finesse. A charming style, with rich layers of dried currant, sage, fresh earth, mineral and light cedary oak. Holds its focus and ends with a complex aftertaste. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. 500 cases made.

Excellent , big wine. Fruity on the nose. On the palate still very fruity, deep, fresh, elegant, robust and chewy. Waves after waves of fruity big juice keeps coming in the mouth. Medium finish. Enjoyed it throughout.

Complex, layers of flavors. Plum and dark fruits transition to cocoa finishing with spice. Balanced and holds the 15.7% alcohol well. Great.
