This was excellent. I've heard folks say that these Saxums won't hold up. Well this Broken Stones at 12 years old is singing and not headed down hill anytime soon. I'm actually surprised by how much fruit is there. A thick and effusive mouthfeel, almost syrup like but not heavy. A long finish to match, with the only negative being the almost 16% alcohol of which it was hard to notice given how well it was balanced. I have a couple left and plan to hold for awhile.
Clear signs of leakage on the cork: streaks on the sides and just a little getting moldy at the end under the capsule. Still, after a half hour of air, the fruit starts to show. Still quite tannic. Color still black red. Gorgeous blackberry fruit. Long complex finish with spice and graphite.
