Broken Stones Red Rhone Blend 2013

Deep purple color. Raspberry liquor, dark fruit, spice and oak. Full body, quite spicy on the palate all the way through the long finish. — 2 hours ago

Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2012

The 2012 Saxum ‘Bone Rock’ Syrah (WWB, 95) is a stunning wine which shows tremendous verve, terroir, weight and intensity, with an exceedingly long finish. The wine is sourced from the Bone Rock block of James Berry Vineyard which is a steeply sloped site planted to head trained Syrah. Amazingly enough, while terracing they found fossilized whale bones when they were digging and needed to use jack hammers to plant the vines. It is not surprising that the flinty undertones impress alongside a deep core of dark currants, wild blackberries and pipe tobacco flavors. The brightness and length of the wine adds to the drinking enjoyment. Showing beautiful poise and elegance, the 2012 ‘Bone Rock’ Syrah will continue to provide drinking enjoyment over the next ten to fifteen years. Drink 2020-2033 — a month ago

Heart Stone Vineyard Syrah Blend 2005

Wow. Easily one of the best Saxum wines (hell, one of the best wines) we’ve had in a long time. Been in our cellar since we got it from Justin in 2007 or 2008 (can’t recall the release date). Not going to bore you with descriptors - just going to recommend if you have a bottle of this in your cellar, crack it open. It will make your week! — 10 days ago

Château de la Négly

Clos des Truffiers Coteaux du Languedoc Syrah 2015

Alex Lallos
9.5

This producer never fails. Not a wine that shows a lot of ‘syrah’ character but Jeeze is it silky, well made and hedonistic. Lots of mocha and coffee on the nose with dark black fruits of the palate. Such a suave wine. Very young at present. Almost reminds me of saxum or sqn. If you are looking for a terroir wine, look elsewhere but if you’re looking for one damn good sexy, deep wine, look no further. — a month ago

Broken Stones Paso Robles Syrah Blend

Fantastic after a four-hour decant. Super rich with long finish. So balanced between the dark fruit and the tannins and acid. Could hold for a little while longer to see if it evolves further. — 11 days ago

James Berry Vineyard Grenache Blend 2011

Excellent...but not as off-scale as I was hoping. Comes across as a bit overextracted, but I suspect that it needed to be chilled down a bit (or might be transitional). Still fantastic...and my second toast of the night. — 24 days ago

Booker Vineyard Paso Robles Grenache Syrah 2006

This 2006 is 100% Syrah. A bit of cheesy funk on the nose clears and the wine pours slightly browning and cloudy. Nice balance between acid, fruit, and tannin...no noticeable alcohol,notes of ripe mountain berry and tart cranberry. Better food companion than I expected. Nice weight and long finish, — a month ago
