SKU #1299948 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2014 Broken Stones is heavenly stuff! Made from a blend of 41% Syrah, 19% Grenache, 16% Petite Sirah, 13% Mourvèdre and the balance Tempranillo and Roussanne, this inky colored beauty offers terrific notes of mostly blue fruits (blackberries, blueberries), crushed violets, Asian spices and forest floor. Full-bodied, concentrated, elegant and seamless on the palate, it has a ripe tannin and a gorgeous finish. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant violet color. Heady, mineral-accented aromas of raspberry liqueur, cherry-cola and potpourri, along with a bright mineral overtone that gains strength as the wine opens up. Offers juicy, densely packed red fruit preserve spicecake and floral pastille flavors that unfurl slowly. Shows a suave interplay of power and elegance, displaying velvety texture and firming mineral cut. An extremely long, sappy finish is shaped by smooth, sneaky tannins and features a lingering, exotic suggestion of Asian spices. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Precise yet rich in personality, offering a dense core of crushed-stone minerality and tannins, bound by expressive blueberry and dried cherry fruit, accented by licorice, dark chocolate and smoked pepper hints. Hands off for now. (TF, Web-2018) Inner quote mark
