Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Advocate | 94+

The Pax Cellars 2007 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard (100% Syrah, 40% whole clusters) possesses an inky/blue/purple color in addition to a burgeoning yet restrained bouquet of Chinese black tea, creme de cassis, blackberries, tar, crushed rocks, graphite, and ink. Deep, full-bodied, and powerful with painful levels of extract and richness, this 2007 needs 3-4 years of cellaring. It should last for at least two decades. Perhaps the closest wine one could compare it to is a concentrated vintage of Hermitage.

About This Producer


Pax Mahle produced a wide selection of vineyard-designate Syrahs from Northern California under this label for many years before leaving to begin another project, Wind Gap. Under the Pax label, he utilized indigenous fermentations, minimal handling, unobtrusive use of French oak and bottling without filtering or fining. Great care was always taken in the vineyards to produce the best fruit possible by maintaining the vines on an individual basis and ensuring low yields. In addition to many Syrahs, Pax also produced several white wines including Roussanne, Viognier, and a white blend. In 2009, with the departure of Mahle, the brand was re-named Donelan Wines.
