Saxum "Broken Stones" Red Blend 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Yes, that's right, there is a decent dose of Petite Sirah in the latest Stones! The PS adds some sinister elements, along with a slight herbal edge to the blend. I really enjoy what this variety brings to the table. The blend is fairly typical for a Broken Stones, with big juicy black fruit being front and center, along with plenty of polish and that great stony minerality that our rocky soils bring forth. Please lay this wine down for 6 months or a year. It will continue to improve for many years. 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Grenache

Saxum Vineyards is a boutique winery overseen by winemakers Heather and Justin Smith in the Temple Gap area of Paso Robles, California. The winery focuses on red wines using the Rhone varietal stalwarts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Production is kept to the minimal output of under 3000 cases per year, with low yields divided between the Broken Stones, Heart Stone, James Berry, Booker, Rocket Block, and Bone Rock vineyards. The soils in the growing areas are mainly calcareous, providing incentive for roots to dig deep for natural moisture, with elevated locations that ensure balanced grape ripeness. The wines are handmade, organic, and sustainable, free of added chemicals or vineyard pesticides.  Read less
