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

Starting to get a little Paso habit going. This was black as night. Leather and dark fruit. Beautiful wine.
