Tasting Notes:
rated: August 3, 2011 , Antonio Galloni (WA)
96 points "The 2009 Broken Stones is sourced from all of the estate’s vineyards, which in this vintage includes Padereweski fruit for the first time, although most of the fruit was sourced from James Berry. Today it comes across as rather tightly wound and implosive, although with air the wine’s potential becomes more evident. Dark cherries, licorice and smoke wrap around the intense finish. Floral notes add the final layers of complexity and nuance. This is another fabulous effort. In 2009 the blend is 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, 12% Petite Sirah and 8% Grenache." Best 2014-2021

95 points "This muscle-bound red offers a firm backbone of mineral, loamy earth, spice and cedar, with blackberry, licorice and berry pie flavors folding in behind. The most intense and angular of the new Saxums. Syrah, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah and Grenache. Drink now through 2022. 740 cases made. –JL" Best -2022
