A heady, alluringly perfumed bouquet displays scents of cherry compote, black raspberry, potpourri and incense. Deep, sweet and pliant, showing remarkably intense, concentrated red and blue fruit preserve flavors and a sexy floral pastille nuance.

I am thrilled to see that the 2010 Bone Rock is just as phenomenal today as it was last year. An exotic blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Roussanne (co-fermented), the Bone Rock boasts stunning aromatic and flavor intensity and remarkable overall balance. The Roussanne tempers the brute power of the Syrah, while allowing the fruit to be totally expressive and beautiful. Ripe, silky tannins frame dark red fruit, exotic spices and white flowers on the striking finish. Saxum lovers will not want to miss this dazzling effort. The use of 40% whole clusters works beautifully here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Built to cellar, this is intensely peppery, rich and vibrant, with dark berry, roasted herb and espresso. Gains depth and persistence through to the finish, revealing subtle flavor nuances that touch on tobacco, road tar and licorice.
