- Calculated at Checkout
Checking in as a blend of 54% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 11% Mourvedre, the 2013 Heart Stone Vineyard is the most fruit-loaded, forward and approachable of the '13s. Black raspberries, kirsch, spring flowers and pepper all emerge from this full-bodied beauty and it has the purity, prettiness and elegance of the vintage. It will drink nicely on release and have at least a decade of longevity. If you're looking to try one of the '13s right on release, this is the one.
You know how bullish I am on these 13s (I think about everyone is, actually), well, I haven't changed my tune since I wrote to you last. I am still really digging them. As always, these wines will need a few years of slumber, but they will reward you greatly. Juicy rich fruit, tons of sweet tannins, and incredible complexity. The depth is really what gets me going on them, ever changing layers that reveal new aspects of the wine with each sip. It definitely makes drinking them a joy.
