Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 190

The 2008 Heart Stone, a blend of 47% Syrah, 39% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre, is very elegant but evolved and supple, with beautiful kirsch and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, camphor, pepper, and a hint of lavender. More evolved than the 2007 was at a similar stage, but with slightly lower alcohols, its velvety tannins stand out in this rich, plush, opulent, voluptuously textured wine. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.

There's amazing harmony and range of flavor in this red, which offers richness, elegance and finesse, with layers of blackberry, wild berry, plum and cherry fruit that's full-bodied, smooth-textured and layered, opening doors of flavor on an amazingly long, intricate finish.

OMG - really good. Lots going on. More on the medium side of fully bodied - red and black fruits, smoke, spices. Probably won't get much better...drink up!

Excellent fruit as usual. No alcohoic vapor. Acids and tannins a little painful but this rounded into form after 4-5 hours. Hold this for a while.

Lighter than typical with more raspberry, dark cherry. Nicely balanced tannin/acid
