Pax Wines "Sonoma Hillsides" Syrah 2019
One of the most highly regarded Syrah bottlings from the USA. Pax and Pamela Mahle wines have a savory and herbaceous quality, reminiscent of the Northern Rhone Valley of France. But they still show classic California character with generous, ripe purple and black fruits. Not ever big and jammy though...this wine clocks in at 12.5% ABV so its medium bodied and has refreshing acidity for a red wine. 100% whole cluster and 10 months in concrete tanks.
