Wine AdvocateScheduled for bottling in June, the 2016 Heart Stone Vineyard offers up a pretty bouquet of dried flowers and wild berries, framed by incipient savory bass notes. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fine-grained and elegant, with bright, crunchy fruit flavors, excellent concentration and a long, perfumed finish. This is the only wine in the Saxum cellar that comes from the Adelaida District on the western side of Paso Robles. The 2016 is a blend of 51% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 13% Mataro, 6% Petite Sirah and 3% Touriga Nacional. It's being matured in 37% new puncheons, 53% large amphorae and the balance in used wood.

Wine SpectatorA distinctive, eclectic style, offering a potpourri of aromas and flavors, from potent blackberry and licorice to fruitcake spices, black olive and crushed stone. Builds tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Mataro, Petite Sirah and Touriga Nacional. Drink now through 2026. 250 cases made.
