International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 171

(58% syrah, 37% grenache and 5% mourvedre; no new oak and 14.8% alcohol, which is quite low by Saxum standards): Opaque purple. Highly perfumed aromas of dark fruit preserves, violet, olive tapenade and cracked pepper, with an exotic blood orange nuance emerging with aeration. Weighty but surprisingly lithe on the palate, offering sweet blueberry and mulberry flavors and strong floral and spicecake accents. Closes spicy and long, with supple tannins making a late appearance and adding gentle grip.

Wine Advocate Author: Jeb Dunnuck Issue: 208

The 2011 Heartstone Vineyard is a blend of 58% Syrah, 37% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre that was brought up in mostly concrete, with 20% in puncheons. Fermented with 60% whole cluster, it's gorgeously pure and perfumed, with energetic blackberry, violets, lavender, underbrush and pepper styled aromas and flavors that round into a full-bodied, seamless 2011 that finishes with ripe, yet firm tannin. Normally one of the most accessible early on, this 2011 will benefit from short-term cellaring and have a long life. Drink 2015-2026.
