99 points "Coming mostly from a cooler block on James Berry Vineyard, the 2011 Syrah Broken Stones (78% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre and 4% Petite Sirah) has off-the-hook purity and focus. Aged in two-thirds new puncheons, it delivers a stunning aromatic display with complex blueberry, pepper, flowers, potpourri and spice being just some of the notes emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, textured and rich, it’s the purity that really sets this apart. Give it 2-3 years once released and enjoy it over the following decade. Drink 2016-2026.

96 points "The 2009 Broken Stones is sourced from all of the estate’s vineyards, which in this vintage includes Padereweski fruit for the first time, although most of the fruit was sourced from James Berry. Today it comes across as rather tightly wound and implosive, although with air the wine’s potential becomes more evident. Dark cherries, licorice and smoke wrap around the intense finish. Floral notes add the final layers of complexity and nuance. This is another fabulous effort. In 2009 the blend is 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, 12% Petite Sirah and 8% Grenache." Best 2014-2021
