93 points "Wine Advocate # 190 Aug 2010 Robert Parker 93 Drink: 2010 - 2020 $125 The 2008 Heart Stone, a blend of 47% Syrah, 39% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre, is very elegant but evolved and supple, with beautiful kirsch and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, camphor, pepper, and a hint of lavender. More evolved than the 2007 was at a similar stage, but with slightly lower alcohols, its velvety tannins stand out in this rich, plush, opulent, voluptuously textured wine. Drink it over the next 7-10 years." Best -2017

95 points "Impresses with its finesse, serving up a supple, generous mix of up-front plum, huckleberry and blueberry fruit that's elegant, delicate and polished. Full-bodied, seamless and refined, ending with a long, detailed finish. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2017. 450 cases made. –JL" Best -2017
