2004 Saxum Heart Stone Vineyard Syrah
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.

Robert Parker

Rating 92 RP - The 2004 Heartstone Vineyard which was planted with 13 different clones of Syrah includes 50% of the Broken Stones cuvee. A 250-case blend of 60% Syrah 30% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache it boasts gorgeous minerality along with classic blueberry liqueur-like characteristics interwoven with acacia flower licorice and subtle new oak notes. Medium to full-bodied pure and loaded it should drink well for 7-8 years. I highly recommend that wine enthusiasts who love Rhone Ranger wines pay a visit to the James Berry Vineyard one of the true grand cru sites in the region. RP
