This is how you do cool climate Syrah without ignoring California sunshine. All the smokey, meaty, olive-y briney-ness of a great St. Joseph, but with fruit that's a little more central to this wine than you might find in the Northern Rhône. I wouldn't call it lush or molten or anything, but it manages to be ripe without overpowering the savory side or coming across as sweet. Value every year, good now, good later v

We couldn't wait, Pax. Young but lovely... Delicate blueberry, boysenberry, lavender and black pepper aromas, and brambly goodness through the midpalate. Bright finish, bright future!

Stellar. Seems to show more Viognier than the 1% that comes in from Nellesen vineyard, combined with fruit from Majik and Armagh. Truly outstanding Syrah.

A little austere but bright forest fruits are there with rather bracing acidity. Comes across old-world and rather charming. Let's be honest, these are very young with massive potential. Can't wait to try these with a few years of cellar age. Nice work by the man, Pax Mahle.

Love the style of this house. Varietally true wines, fruit driven but with just a touch of old world character.

Young yet, but already so pretty. Blue fruit starting to unwind to reveal game, earth and leather. Closer to St. Joseph than typical California.

Drank over two days...this was a head-scratcher for me as it never really revealed itself. Reticent now. Hold.
