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.

About This Producer


Saxum Vineyards is focused on producing Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre-based blends from the Templeton Gap of Paso Robles, California. They let their rocky calcareous soils, steep hillsides, and cooling ocean breezes speak through their wines by keeping yields extremely low, picking fruit at the peak of ripeness, and using a minimalist approach in the cellar. Production is kept at a total of 2200-2800 cases per year divided between 6 different cuvees: Broken Stones, Heart Stone Vineyard, James Berry Vineyard, Booker Vineyards, Rocket Block and Bone Rock.
