International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($65; a blend of numerous elements, in what Mahle describes as an Hermitage style; fermented entirely with whole clusters and aged in a very low percentage of new barrels) Saturated black-ruby color. Knockout nose combines crushed dark berries, bitter chocolate, licorice and fresh herbs. Creamy, superconcentrated and deep; fills the mouth and then some. A syrah of compelling sweetness and length. Finishes with huge, dusty, building tannins and a strong peppery aspect. This needs a good three or four years of additional cellaring.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

A limited cuvee (207 cases) is the 2002 Syrah Cuvee Keltie. The tightest offering in this portfolio, it is Hermitage-like in its proportions, restraint, and intense earthiness/minerality. An opaque purple color is accompanied by scents of ground pepper, roasted espresso, blackberries, and cassis. When Pax Mahle told me that 100% stems were used in this cuvee, I was astonished because there is not a bit of stemmy/vegetal character. This tight, formidably endowed Syrah is best treated like a great French Hermitage ... wait 6-8 years and drink it over the following two decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dark-hued, with rich, intense, deeply concentrated fruit built around a core of dense blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry flavors that flow across the palate. This deeply concentrated wine isn't shy about its tannins, either, yet they're ripe and integrated, finishing with a long, vibrant finish and a dash of beef and leather.
