There is great flavor and tannin development in the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard. Saxum was able to bring in some incredibly complex but intense fruit that was a pleasure to work with in the cellar. Speaking of the cellar, in 2010 Saxum purchased a whole slew of concrete fermentors and were extremely happy with how well they turned their fruit into wine. The concrete definitely helped in softening up the prodigious tannins of 2010 and allowed the winery to keep the wines fresher and more focused. It is a lovely combination.
"One of the more open, seductive wines in the range, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard comes across perfumed and juicy today, with less of the structure I saw when the wine was in barrel. Heart Stone is 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache, and it is the Grenache that seems to front and center in this tasting. It will be interesting to see how the 2010 develops over the coming years. Will it continue to be Grenache-dominated, or is the wine simply in a phase where the Syrah elements are a bit subdued? Time will tell.Rating: 95+"

"Offers a broad range of dense, earth- and mineral-laced cranberry, raspberry and wild berry, touching on berry pie and black licorice. Ends chewy. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases made."
