2005 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1087263 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Looking at the 2005 Heart Stone Vineyard, this blend of 44% Syrah, 33% Grenache and 23% Mourvedre offers up impressive aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness and fabulous purity of fruit. Creme de cassis, black cherries, licorice, smoked earth and wild herbs like qualities all emerge from the glass, and this nicely structured effort stays pure and focused on the palate, with excellent overall freshness and energy. It should easily continue to shine for another decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Room-filling bouquet of red and black fruits, Asian spices, fresh violet and lavender and suave vanillin oak. Vibrant, palate-staining raspberry and blackberry flavors deliver sweet depth, with zesty minerality adding energy. Silky tannins slowly build on the long, spicy finish. Seamless and elegant; this is more open than the Broken Stones today. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2007)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The chocolate, cassis, cherry liqueur, licorice and smoky oak flavors are wrapped into smooth, rich, ripe tannins. Compulsively drinkable, almost a food group on its own, the wine is roughly equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Inner quote mark (5/2008)
