  • 2011 Saxum Broken Stones – USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (2/10/2019)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of barnyard, leather, berries and plums. Flavors of raspberries, plums and jam. Medium acidity, firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with a little air to help some of the bottle funk blow off and can continue to hold into the short to medium term. (93 points)

    My guess was this is a 2015 Paso Robles Red Blend. Perhaps a Saxum?
