Broken Stones Red Rhone Blend 2010

Fabulous smoky bouquet. I tasted a lot of blackberries, plums, a bit of blueberry, chocolate, and lavender. A seductive and satisfying wine from beginning to end. — 2 months ago

James Berry Vineyard Grenache Blend 2017

Exceptionally rish and deep flavors of darker berries with a bit of red fruits blended in. Very complex with a killer finish. Drinking well now, but has the stuffing for further improvement. Fantastic. — 4 months ago

Thought I posted this 6-7 months ago but evidently it didn’t go through.

While I’m still on the waitlist, I’m able to buy a few bottles a year from a friend. This is the first bottle I purchased back in 2017. I know it’s young, but I couldn’t resist any longer. I double decanted this for about an hour then consumed from bottle over the next three.

I’ve had most of the Saxum offerings, but I don’t think I’ve had Broken Stones before, yet it’s just absolutely killer like every other Saxum I’ve had. Deeply purple/black in the glass with aromatics of roasted blueberries and blackberries that are then dipped in dark chocolate, alongside smoked meat. I never know how else to describe it, but certain high quality Paso Rhône style blends have this airy/weightless-jammy flair to them, which I love…definitely present here. Coiled up at first but as the evening moved on, the layers kept unfolding with notes of charcoal, spiced dark fruits, cherry jerky. Perfect balance of acidity & tannin.

Best in 2-3yrs, but quite enjoyable with 3-4hrs of air now.

@Paul T- Huntington Beach @Eric S : I’ve been fortunate to have many aged Saxums (the brother of the owners of Epoch is in my local wine group and brings plenty). What I’ve found is I love Saxum both young and old. I made the list after a 5-yr wait and tried quite a few today from some friends’ cellar and it reinforced my affection.

IMO 8-10 years is great. It really depends on the wine and the vintage. Consistently good!

Booker Vineyard Syrah Mourvédre 2014

After the 2000 C-d-P and ‘98 barista ballet shiraz , this wine seemed younger and a bit of a fruit Bomb .
On it’s own stood really well. Big and structured wine.
