Saxum Broken Stones 2013

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

You know how bullish I am on these 13s (I think about everyone is, actually), well, I haven't changed my tune since I wrote to you last. I am still really digging them. As always, these wines will need a few years of slumber, but they will reward you greatly. Juicy rich fruit, tons of sweet tannins, and incredible complexity. The depth is really what gets me going on them, ever changing layers that reveal new aspects of the wine with each sip. It definitely makes drinking them a joy.

Wine AdvocateThe Syrah-dominated 2013 Syrah Broken Stones always incorporates small amounts of Petite Sirah (22% in 2013), Grenache and Mourvedre and will see 18-20 months in mostly new French oak. Inky colored and mineral-laced, with the chalkiness that's so common from these limestone soils, it gives up lots of red and black fruits, liquid violets, licorice and meatiness to go with a full-bodied, nicely structured, layered profile on the palate. Coming after the tannic 2012s, you really see the improvement in the tannin quality here.
