Saxum Broken Stones Paso Robles 2011

"Little lighter in color, but still quite dark, and a little lower in alcohol, but still comparatively weighty. The aromatics are what is magical on this set of wines, the cool temperatures kept them amazingly fresh and ethereal. Definitely on the spice side as opposed to the fruit aspect that we normally see more of in a warmer year. In the cellar, Saxum tried to respect this character of the 2011 vintage. Saxum used a little more whole cluster fermentation to soften the tannins and increase the spiciness and we cut down on the amount of new oak we would normally use to let the spice shine through even more. The increased amount of concrete aging vessels used to really bring it all home with an exclamation point!"

78% Syrah
