2016 PAX “THE HERMIT” SYRAH
Why is Syrah such a great value? Syrah is one of the classic varietals of the world, and while legend has its origins in Persia, it was made famous in the Northern Rhone valley of France with the world-class wines Cote Rotie and Hermitage. Many would argue that in the New World, Americans are a little behind the curve in the appreciation of Syrah. Because of this, Syrah is still a remarkable value… Legendary Syrah producer Pax Mahle recognized the untapped potential for domestic Syrah nearly 20 years ago and produced his first vintage of Alder Springs Syrah in 2000. He’s now producing 100 point Syrahs, and many would include him in the same conversation with Manfred Krankl at Sine Qua Non and John Alban of Alban Vineyards. All three have proven abilities to produce domestic Syrah that will compete with the best wines in the world. At $39.99/btl you have to try this…
The 2016 Pax The Hermit Syrah combines fruit from Alder Springs, Castelli-Knight Ranch, Griffins Lair and Walker Vine Hill Vineyards, which three of those vineyards also makeup his Sonoma Hillside Syrah which recently earned a perfect 100 point score from Vinous. Again, you have to try this… The 2016 is classic, cool climate California Syrah which stunning depth, length and balance. With only 411 cases produced, don’t wait to secure yours.

Winery Notes: “Iron, green peppercorn, black pepper, bittersweet chocolate, black cherry and sweet plums dominate the aromas of this classic expression of Syrah. The flavors follow the complex aromas and highlight the fantastic balance of the 2016 vintage. Intense and begging for some time in your cellar, this classic Syrah has very smooth tannins and is incredibly dense and powerful for what is essentially a blend of the barrels that are not used in our high-end wines. This is clearly a testament of the quality of the amazing array of vineyards that we pull fruit from.” 411cases made
