|| | $59 | 2021 Pax Sonoma-Hillsides Syrah


Pax Wines was started in 2000 with a focus on perfecting California Syrah. Their holistic winemaking begins first and foremost in the vineyard. The sites that were select for the Sonoma-Hillsides blend feature blocks with intriguing hillside expositions and cool climates influenced by the coastal wind gaps of Sonoma County. These vineyards are farmed using organic, sustainable and/or using biodynamic methods and are among the most heralded sites of the Sonoma region for growing Syrah. This blend typically includes wines vinified from Walker Vine Hill, Castelli-Knight Ranch, Griffins, Felix, Nellessen Vineyards, and perhaps others. The health of these vineyards allows them to use indigenous yeast for fermentation.

Antonio Galloni for Vinous on the vintage: “Pax Mahle presented a stellar set of new releases in our most recent tasting. The 2021s might be the most impressive set of wines I have ever tasted here.”

“The 2021 Syrah Sonoma Hillsides is towering and statuesque in bearing from the very first taste. I dont think I have ever tasted a Sonoma Hillsides with this much finesse, this much purity. A wine of vertical energy, the Sonoma Hillsides possesses tremendous depth from start to finish. In many vintages the Hillsides leans towards a darker expression of Syrah. The 2021, on the other hand, is marked by more of a red/purplish fruit profile, with bright floral and citrus overtones that confer freshness. Once again, Pax Mahle made one of the truly epic wines of the year. His Sonoma Hillsides has been one of the very finest wines in Northern California for a number of years now.”
