Winemaker Notes

The stars aligned, and everything is just right. The perfect amount of fruit richness, the right amount of ripe tannins, the perfect amount of acidity, and incredible balance, all wrapped up with some nice freshness and aromatic intensity.

Blend: 52% Syrah, 18% Mataro, 10% Grenache, 10% Tempranillo, 8% Petite Sirah, 2% Roussanne

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 97
Jeb Dunnuck

Brought up in foudre, amphora, and some new puncheons, the 2016 Broken Stones offers a deep, full-bodied, quintessential Paso Robles style that carries plenty of freshness and acidity, notes of black and blue fruits, smoked meats, violets, and ground pepper, polished tannins, and a monster of a finish. A blend of 51% Syrah, 17% Mourvèdre, 13% Grenache, and the rest Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, and Roussanne, it’s going to benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for 15 years or more.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Broken Stones is a blend of 52% Syrah, 18% Mataro, 10% Grenache, 10% Tempranillo, 8% Petite Sirah and 2% Roussanne, from the James Berry, G2 and Paderewski vineyards. The wine was made with 8% whole cluster and aged 22 months in 51% new oak, 31% foudres and 13% amphorae. Medium to deep ruby in the glass, it's scented of black cherry coulis, roasted coffee beans, potpourri, dried rose petals, underbrush and hints of scorched earth and amaro. The medium to full-bodied palate is intense, savory and meaty in character with pure touches of chocolate mint, a firm and grainy frame with a touch of chew and great freshness, finishing long.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Precise and structured, with vibrant blueberry, dried cherry and smoky baking spice notes that build subtle torque toward broad-shouldered tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Roussanne, Petite Sirah, Mataro and Tempranillo. Best from 2021 through 2030.
