International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 150

($75; 92% syrah and 5% grenache, with the rest a blend of viognier, marsanne and roussanne aged for 58 months in oak; 15.7% alcohol) Dark ruby. A complex, expansive bouquet displays smoky herbs, dark berry liqueur, red- and blackcurrant, potpourri and an exotic apricot pit quality. Lush, pungent dark fruit and floral pastille flavors are complemented by smoky herbal and floral qualities and framed by supple tannins. Leaves spice and licorice notes behind on the long, sappy finish.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 187

Proprietors Pam and Pax Mahle have fashioned a 2004 Syrah called Agharta. Aged 58 months (that's not a typo) in French oak casks (the 2005, 2006, and 2007 vintages will spend 45-48 months in cask), the extraordinary 2004 is a 475-case blend of 92% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and the rest Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussane. Most of the Syrah comes from the Alder Springs Vineyard in Mendocino. This profound wine's inky/purple color is followed by aromas of smoky barbecue meats, grilled Provencal herbs, and exotic tropical fruits intermixed with blackberry, cassis, blueberry, and graphite. This super-rich effort tastes like the nectar of Syrah, yet it is dry, elegant, and remarkably fresh and precise. In the mouth, the impression is like that of a multilayered cake everything is there. This is an amazing, very multi-dimensional wine that must be tasted to be believed. It can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.

This wine continues to get better and better. It drinks more like a fine CdP then a Sonoma Coast Syrah

In know it seems difficult to believe, but this bottle was better than the first. Our 2010 wine of the year to date. Simply phenomenal! Congrats to Pax and the team for something truly other worldly....
