    August 16, 2016 - Not my favorite. Volatile acidity. Past prime by a few years. Meaty. Decent but other '04s are better.

    August 16, 2016 - Nice meaty ripe cherry fruit with excellent balance and mature flavors. Interesting to compare it to the Donelan Kobler 2012. I appreciate the mature flavors but prefer the younger fruit and spiciness.

    July 2, 2016 - Exceeded expectations. A really balanced if not leading to old world style wine for Pax. Really good length and presence to this wine. Good amount of fruit but equalled if not exceeded by secondary flavors and really good texture/mouthfeel to this wine.

    May 24, 2016 - An interesting Pax -- more old world on the palate than others. Very aromatic/vibrant nose, this does not belie the age. Juicy and dried fruit on the palate, with earthiness. fine sediment and smooth dusty tannins. Tasty.

    February 15, 2016 - Less tannic, more tart, short finish, high acid, blackberry. Least favorite of the 2004 Pax wines. Detecting some funkiness on the nose, chemical/detergent/wet sock
