99 points "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. (97-99 points) Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate #208, August 2013"
