    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    The 2007 Bone Rock, which comes from the James Berry Vineyard (82% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and the rest Grenache, also aged 28 months in a combination of smaller barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons), is super as well. Like its late-released sibling, it has an inky/purple color to the rim and an extraordinary, soaring set of aromatics consisting of spring flowers, pepper, graphite, blackberry and blueberry fruit with hints of raspberry and licorice and jus de viande as well. The extraordinary freshness and elegance of this wine leads to a minerality that even eclipses the Heart Stone. The finish goes on for a good 45+ seconds, and the purity is awesome. This extraordinary wine completes the 2007 portfolio of unbelievable efforts from the Smiths.

    Wine Spectator

    At points ultrarich, opulent and elegant, providing a broad range of dark berry, loamy earth, spice and cedar flavors, with touches of black licorice, sage and tobacco. Powerful yet restrained, gaining weight, depth and traction on the finish, where this ends with a peppery minerality that's fascinating. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Drink now through 2022. 336 cases made.
