2005 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.

Rating 94 RP - 2005 Saxum Heart Stone Vineyard Syrah Looking at the 2005 Heart Stone Vineyard, this blend of 44% Syrah, 33% Grenache and 23% Mourvedre offers up impressive aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness and fabulous purity of fruit. Creme de cassis, black cherries, licorice, smoked earth and wild herbs like qualities all emerge from the glass, and this nicely structured effort stays pure and focused on the palate, with excellent overall freshness and energy. It should easily continue to shine for another decade. RP
