2011 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1153175 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Heart Stone Vineyard is a blend of 58% Syrah, 37% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre that was brought up in mostly concrete, with 20% in puncheons. Showing beautifully from barrel, it didn’t disappoint from bottle and has a perfumed, elegant feel to its purple fruits, lavender, violets, white pepper and underbrush-like aromas and flavors. The whole cluster inclusion shows here, yet it has fantastic purity, fine tannin and integrated acidity. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Taut, tightly wound aromatics. Full yet focused mouthfeel and ease and nuance. Notes of violet, earth and spice on dark wild berry. Rust, saline, and reductive accents throughout. Persistent, grippy tannin, balancing acidity and lots of length. Give it a lot of air upon opening. The character of this wine is a sort of conundrum – it offers what can only be described as an easy tenacity. It will take time in bottle to open up, but there is great harmony and purity throughout. Nicely done. 17+/20 points (ECB) Inner quote mark (2/2016)
