2009 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1081666 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Exotic and masculine at first, with copious amounts of black fruits, wild herbs, mineral, and gorgeous floral characteristics literally soaring from the glass, it fleshes out in the glass and shows more finesse and elegance than you would think possible from such a rich, concentrated wine. Nevertheless, it’s full-bodied and powerful on the palate, with fantastic freshness and purity, as well as a boatload of finely polished tannin. It needs to be forgotten for 3-5 years, possibly longer, and will shine for upwards of two decades or more. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2011)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This muscle-bound red offers a firm backbone of mineral, loamy earth, spice and cedar, with blackberry, licorice and berry pie flavors folding in behind. The most intense and angular of the new Saxums. (JL) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Highly complex, intensely perfumed bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, licorice and pipe tobacco, with a strong note of peppery spices. 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. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2011)
