WA 96 WS 95 IWC 94 - Our Broken Stones cuvee is Syrah based, full-bodied, rich, and intense, but also reveals great purity, focus and complexity. The Broken Stones is the only wine we make that is a multi-vineyard blend, utilizing all the vineyards that we source from. Our wines are never racked off their lees and are bottled unfined and unfiltered.


WA 96 WS 95 IWC 94 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - 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. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.

According to Wine Spectator - The most intense and angular of the new Saxums, this muscle-bound red offers a firm backbone of mineral, loamy earth, spice and cedar, with black berry, licorice and berry pie flavors fold in behind. Syrah, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and Grenache.

According to International Wine Cellar -  (60% syrah, 20% mourvedre, 12% petite sirah and 8% grenache): Glass-staining purple. Highly complex, intensely perfumed bouquet of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, licorice and pipe tobacco, with a strong note of pepperyspices. Deep and juicy, offering palate-staining raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a complete absence of rough edges. Closes sappy and sweet, with excellent clarity and spicy thrust. Really vivacious wine, and balanced to age.
