    The 2010 Syrah Griffins Lair Vineyard opens with beguiling, expressive aromatics. Deep, rich and resonant, the 2010 impresses for its detail and pure nuance. The aromas and flavors are masculine and imposing. Smoke, tar, iron graphite and incense all add to the wine's exotic personality. This full-bodied Syrah is extremely varietally expressive and full of life. In sum, this is a terrific showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

    (made with 75% whole clusters; 13.5% alcohol): Glass-staining ruby. A flamboyantly perfumed bouquet displays scents of cherry liqueur, cassis, bitter chocolate, anise and espresso, complicated by notes of dried flowers. Then youthful and vibrant in the mouth, offering energetic, finely etched flavors of ripe blackberry and boysenberry. Creamy and powerful but with excellent focus and vivacity. The sweet dark berry flavors linger impressively on the smooth, gently tannic finish.

  • 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.
