Pax Sonoma Hillsides Syrah 2021
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
This wine is decadent, delicious and all hyperbole aside, will probably be one of your favorite Syrahs after just one taste. It is without any doubt, one of our finest creations.
The 2021 Syrah Sonoma Hillsides is towering and statuesque in bearing from the very first taste. I don't think I have ever tasted a Sonoma Hillsides with this much finesse, this much purity. A wine of veritcal 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.
