2010 was an incredibly cool season (the coolest we had ever experienced until 2011 came along!). This allowed for some great hang time, which leads to great flavor and tannin development.
Blend: 63% Syrah, 19% Mourvèdre, 15% Grenache, 3% Petite Sirah
A complex, smoky bouquet evokes red and dark berry liqueur, candied flowers and Asian spices. Supple and juicy on the palate, with zesty acidity giving spine and lift to the powerful black raspberry and mulberry flavors. The smoky note comes back on the strikingly long, mineral-driven finish, which is focused, sweet and extremely long.
Deceptively understated, offering a profile of crushed rock and mineral joined by dark berry and spice, with a beefy note on the finish. Firmly tannic. Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2024.
Savory notes meld into black olives, crushed rocks and graphite as the 2010 Broken Stones opens up in the glass. The 2010 stands out for its length and persistence. I had expected the 2010 to be a little bit more expressive, but post-bottling it remains tightly coiled and reticent. Readers will have to be a bit more patient here. Broken Stones is 63% Syrah, 19% Mourvèdre, 15% Grenache and 3% Petite Sirah.
