Saxum Syrah Broken Stones 2011, 750mL (WA97-99) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Saxum Syrah Broken Stones

750mL

Vintage: 2011
Region: US
Appellation: Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo

WA97-99
Rated 97-99 points by the Wine Advocate: `Coming mostly from a cooler block on James Berry Vineyard, the 2011 Syrah Broken Stones (78% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre and 4% Petite Sirah) has off-the-hook purity and focus. Aged in two-thirds new puncheons, it delivers a stunning aromatic display with complex blueberry, pepper, flowers, potpourri and spice being just some of the notes emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, textured and rich, it`s the purity that really sets this apart. Give it 2-3 years once released and enjoy it over the following decade. Drink 2016-2026.?` -- Jeb Dunnuck in Issue #208 of the Wine AdvocateMore information about this producer: `Proprietor Justin Smith continues to fashion some of the most distinctive and impressive efforts coming out of California today and despite an ever increasing level of notoriety and well deserved praise, he remains incredibly humble and down to earth. While the cooler nature of the 2010 and 2011 vintages show in the wine, there`s been a trend here to pull back slightly on the ripeness and oak regime, with an increasing reliance on concrete, whole cluster and larger format barrels. These cooler vintages have also favored the Syrah heavy blends in the lineup, with the Broken Stones, Booker and Bone Rock showing an added dimension. Nevertheless, you can`t go wrong here and this is one mailing list you do not want to miss!`
