2008 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1070059 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 47% Syrah, 39% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre, the 2008 Saxum Heart Stone Vineyard shows a savory, red-fruited personality, with raspberries, dried flowers, baking spices, and baker’s chocolate aromas literally jumping from the glass. Perfectly built on the palate with medium body, great acidity, a light, seamless texture, and a seriously long finish that shows ripe tannin, this beauty highlights complexity and elegance, albeit, in a powerful style. It should no doubt drink beautifully for 15+ years. Inner quote mark (11/2010)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Impresses with its finesse, serving up a supple, generous mix of up-front plum, huckleberry and blueberry fruit that's elegant, delicate and polished. Full-bodied, seamless and refined, ending with a long, detailed finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2010)
