2013 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1245731 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Checking in as a final blend of 54% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 11% Mourvedre, the 2013 Heart Stone Vineyard shows the class and purity of the vintage in its complex, floral-laced aromas of dark fruits, spice and minerality. Full-bodied, seamless and silky, with no hard edges and terrific purity, it's another 2013 from Smith that will open up with another year in bottle. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Vibrant purple. Intensely perfumed scents of ripe black and blue fruits, incense and cola gain vivacity from a smoky mineral nuance. Deeply concentrated, palate-staining blueberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors are accompanied by suggestions of licorice and Indian spices that emerge on the back half. Finishes with a suave echo of candied violet, displaying slowly building tannins, outstanding energy and dark-fruit-driven persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Distinctive and densely constructed, with aromas of blackberry, black tea and olive leading to tightly focused, personality-filled flavors of wild berry, licorice and smoky peppered sage. Offers a firm, loamy structure and a tannic frame on the finish. (TF) Inner quote mark (2/2016)
