Winemaker Notes

The growing season of 2014 was so dry that it is the defining feature of these wines. You can tell the vines struggled to squeeze every last drop of available moisture out of their bed of rocks that Saxum calls its soil. The wines are tightly wound and concentrated, but in a different way than the 2013s, more stoney. Wet stones and chalk, minerality, spices, and then the core of fruit. The tannins are more refined, or transparent, than the monster tannins of ’13 or ’12. These wines are reminiscent of the 2010s, which never had huge tannins, but have evolved very slowly, taking their sweet time to really strut their stuff.

Blend: 41% Syrah, 19% Grenache, 16% Petite Sirah, 13% Mourvedre, 8% Tempranillo, 3% Roussanne

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2014 Broken Stones is heavenly stuff! Made from a blend of 41% Syrah, 19% Grenache, 16% Petite Sirah, 13% Mourvèdre and the balance Tempranillo and Roussanne, this inky colored beauty offers terrific notes of mostly blue fruits (blackberries, blueberries), crushed violets, Asian spices and forest floor. Full-bodied, concentrated, elegant and seamless on the palate, it has a ripe tannin and a gorgeous finish. This is a fabulous wine to enjoy anytime over the coming decade.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 41% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre, 19% Grenache, 16% Petite Sirah, 8% Tempranillo and 3% Roussanne, the 2014 Broken Stones has a deep garnet-purple color and exuberant black and blue fruit notes with suggestions of raspberry pie, potpourri, spice cake and fallen leaves, plus a waft of chocolate box. Full-bodied and full-on gorgeous, it fills the palate with soft, sexy fruit and plush tannins, finishing on a spicy note.
