92 points "Even though it's only 18% Grenache, it shows through much more than the 71% Syrah. Needs a full day decant to appreciate, and for me it's a tad on the grapey side. Nonetheless, a very nice GSM (heavy on the "G"!). "

96 points "The 2007 Broken Stones (71% Syrah, 18% Grenache, and 11% Mourvedre) is a gorgeously seamless wine with an inky/blue/purple color, a tight but promising nose of blue and black fruits, incense, charcoal, and extraordinarily pure black raspberry and blackberry fruit, fabulous concentration in the mouth, velvety, well-integrated tannins, and a mind-bogglingly long finish. This wine will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 15 or more. (96+)." Best 2011-2026
