Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($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.

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....

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
