International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 159

(60% syrah, 20% mourvedre, 12% petite sirah and 8% grenache): Glass-staining purple. Highly complex, intensely perfumed bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, licorice and pipe tobacco, with a strong note of pepperyspices. Deep and juicy, offering palate-staining raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a complete absence of rough edges. Closes sappy and sweet, with excellent clarity and spicy thrust. Really vivacious wine, and balanced to age.

The 2009 Broken Stones is sourced from all of the estate's vineyards, which in this vintage includes Padereweski fruit for the first time, although most of the fruit was sourced from James Berry. Today it comes across as rather tightly wound and implosive, although with air the wine's potential becomes more evident. Dark cherries, licorice and smoke wrap around the intense finish. Floral notes add the final layers of complexity and nuance. This is another fabulous effort. In 2009 the blend is 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, 12% Petite Sirah and 8% Grenache. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

The most intense and angular of the new Saxums, this muscle-bound red offers a firm backbone of mineral, loamy earth, spice and cedar, with black berry, licorice and berry pie flavors fold in behind. Syrah, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and Grenache.

Stunning at open - a bit muddied following double decant and return to bottle with a little heat on finish. Let sit for another year or two before opening another. But, impressive.
