2010 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1125552 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark More dense and rich, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard is a co-fermented blend of 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache that comes from a small 7-acre, south-facing vineyard located on the western side of Paso Robles. Aged mostly in large oak puncheons for 20-28 months, it offers up a savory, complex bouquet of kirsch and blackberry-like fruit, meat juice, Provencal herbs, dried licorice, and dusty minerality. Gorgeous on the palate as well, with a deft, elegant texture, building richness, and layers of chewy tannin ... (JD) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the more open, seductive wines in the range, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard comes across perfumed and juicy today, with less of the structure I saw when the wine was in barrel. Heart Stone is 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache, and it is the Grenache that seems to front and center in this tasting. It will be interesting to see how the 2010 develops over the coming years. Will it continue to be Grenache-dominated, or is the wine simply in a phase where the Syrah elements are a bit subdued? Time will tell. (AG) 95+ Inner quote mark (7/2013)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Powerful aromas of cherry-cola, blackberry, smoky minerals and violet, with a sexy oak spice nuance in the background. Lush and creamy on the palate, offering sweet, deeply concentrated dark berry flavors and a refreshing jolt of smoky minerals. Finishes bright and delineated, with lingering notes of cinnamon and candied flowers. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers a broad range of dense, earth- and mineral-laced cranberry, raspberry and wild berry, touching on berry pie and black licorice. Ends chewy. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2013)
