In a vertical tasting of Saxum Bone Rock, 2000 thru 2007, this was the groups favorite. It is in a beautiful, still youthful, place right now. This is a blend of 88% Syrah, 8% Grenache, and 4% Mourvedre with 15.7% abv. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, some char, some roasted meat and slight floral note. Full bodied. Lots of energy and at the same time, almost weightless as it dances across the palate. Notes of black raspberries with minerality and char. Great acidity. Long finish. Delicious. Drinking very well on its own, this will work well with roasted meat or fowl. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
