Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($55) Inky violet. Lush and inviting, with ripe boysenberry and blackberry aromas and a bright mineral overlay. Broad and fleshy, with deep dark fruit flavors, soft tannins and a suggestion of black cardamom. As round and supple as this is, there's good structure and focus here, with a gentle lift of acidity on the finish adding energy.

Dark red. Red and blue fruits mixed with espresso flavors. Typical Syrah olive flavors with some spiciness. Big and fruit forward with sweet tannins

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.
