2003 Saxum Broken Stones Vineyard Syrah - 95 pts!
Saxum Vineyards is focused on producing Grenache, Syrah, and Mataro based blends from the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles. We let our rocky calcareous soils, steep hillsides, sunny days, and cooling ocean breezes speak through our wines by keeping our yields low, picking the fruit at the peak of ripeness, and using a minimalist approach in the cellar. We respect our land and farm everything sustainably without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Because our vine’s roots penetrate deep through the fissures in the calcareous soil irrigation is rarely needed. Production is kept at 5000 – 6000 cases a year divided between nine different cuvees, Broken Stones, James Berry Vineyard, G2 Vineyard, Bone Rock, Rocket Block, Booker Vineyard, Paderewski Vineyard, Heart Stone Vineyard, and Terry Hoage Vineyard.

Rating RP95 - 2003 Saxum Broken Stones Vineyard Syrah - 95 pts! The 2003 Broken Stones a 350-case blend of 80% Syrah 12% Grenache and 8% Mourvedre offers a fabulously sweet nose of black raspberries blackberries licorice pepper and subtle herbs followed by pure full-bodied flavors that coat the palate but are neither heavy nor cloying. The oak component is virtually undetectable as it is concealed by the wine's wealth of fruit and extraordinary concentration. It should drink well for 10-12 years. RP
