Saxum Proprietary Red Heartstone Vineyard 2005, 750mL (WA94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Saxum Proprietary Red Heartstone Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo
Producer: Saxum

WA94
Rated 94 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The northern Rhone-like 2005 Heart Stone Vineyard is a blend of 44% Syrah, 33% Grenache, and 23% Mourvedre. A meaty nose with roasted Provencal herbs, cassis, blackberry, licorice, and smoke emerges from this Hermitage-styled effort. Structured and firm, it will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and should evolve effortlessly for a decade or more. The bottled 2005s are all performing well.`One of the superstar, artisinal winemaking operations in Paso Robles is Heather and Justin Smith`s Saxum Vineyard. The Smiths are also the proprietors of the James Berry Vineyard, an exceptional hillside site planted in pure white limestone, a site that provides extraordinary richness, minerality, precision, and individuality. Like his colleague to the south, Manfred Krankl, Justin Smith has been moving from strength to strength, building more elegance and nuances into his wines without sacrificing their intrinsic intensity, purity, and richness. As for the 2006s, these wines are scheduled to be bottled slightly later than usual as Justin Smith is another producer who is instituting longer cask and pungeon agings. The 2007s tasted suggest this may be one of the finest vintages Saxum has yet produced. The wines are already spectacular, and will no doubt gain in weight, texture, and nuances over the next year.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
