2012 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1200643 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Syrah Broken Stones is a beauty. Made from 79% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah and the rest Grenache, Mourvedre and Roussanne, it offers up full-bodied, decadent, yet incredibly pure notes of creme de cassis, smoked earth, pepper and violets. Seamless and silky, yet with a great mid-palate and notable tannin, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will have 15 years or more of overall longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saturated purple. Spectacular perfume of fresh blueberry, boysenberry, incense, vanilla and smoky minerals, with suave allspice and star anise nuances coming up as the wine stretches out. Sweet, incisive and pure on the palate, offering an array of dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors, along with suggestions of cola and spicecake. Leaves sexy lavender and blue fruit notes behind on an extremely long, vibrant finish that's firmed and focused by silky, fully integrated tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A tour de force that's dense, powerful and chunky, with a rich, extracted core of dark berry, graphite, crushed rock, tar and cedar notes. Gripping but engaging on the finish. Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Roussanne. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2015)
