Pax Majik Vineyard Syrah 2005
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Opaque purple. Explosively aromatic aromas of red and dark berries complicated by strong graphite and iron notes and intense florality. Brilliant raspberry and blueberry flavors are deep and concentrated but also energized by vibrant minerality and framed by fine-grained tannins. Really gorgeous syrah with vivid Northern Rhone character and a sweet, remarkably long finish. One of the most striking wines of my trip-and the alcohol is a shockingly low 11.5%!.
