The 2006 Broken Stones (63% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and 13% Mourvedre) blew me away. An inky/purple color and a dazzling, explosive bouquet of black raspberries, camphor, cassis, forest floor, and spring flowers are followed by a rich, elegant wine offering laser-like precision as well as a striking minerality. It is a powerful yet graceful effort that should drink well for 10-12+ years.

Offers waves of ripe, exotic dark berry fruit, with wild berry, raspberry and blackberry jam notes that are full-bodied, rich and intense, pure and focused, ending with a long, complex, persistent finish. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre.

black fruit and minerality on the nose. Broad entry on the palate, with fine semi-integrated tannins, full bodied with layers of black fruit, cassis and spice on the palate, very long finish. This is a yound beauty.

This was a religious experience. Laser precision and incredible minerality...near perfect wine. This remains one of my alltime favorite wines.

Wait 2-3 years then decant. Infanticide.

Site Blog: WiredJC Very nice, albeit typical big wine, very approachable with a huge fruity nose and a wonderful (though decidedly food-unfriendly) drinker.
