  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($25) Deep ruby-red. Smoky aromas of black raspberry, currant, bitter chocolate and roasted meat. Lush, smooth and silky, with sound framing acidity and nicely integrated oak. Finishes with sweet tannins and good length. Just lacks the excitement and verve for an outstanding rating.

  • 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.
