International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 153

($75; 79% syrah, 13% grenache and 8% mourvedre) Opaque purple. Exotic, floral and spice-accented black and blue fruits on the nose, with hints of fruitcake, vanilla and cola emerging with air. Impressively deep and powerful, offering sweet dark berry preserve and smoky spice flavors and a touch of candied violet. The extremely persistent finish is broad, sweet and penetrating, leaving smoke and spice notes behind. I like this wine's blend of depth and energy.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 190

The 2008 Broken Stones (79% Syrah, 13% Grenache, and the rest Mourvedre) has a bluish purple color to the rim, with the classic nose of camphor, charcoal, black currant, and blackberry with hints of licorice and smoke. This intense wine displays great fruit, some structure, and a beautifully seamless texture. It is more evolved and open than the 2007 was at the same time, and just slightly less profound. It should drink nicely for at least a decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

An elegant style, rich without being weighty, serving up a mix of spicy dried berry, tobacco leaf, mineral and graphite. This wows you with its finesse and polish, offering subtle flavors that caress the palate. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre.

Opened for 5 hours, started in an hour into that time frame. Blackberry, black cherry, some tar notes, smoke. Impeccably balanced though as the alc does not impeded on the experience, if any thing more sweet than I would like and a little less complex than I would have hoped for.
