I really didn't know what to make of this at first as I couldn't quite wrap my head around the aromas, and the taste seemed bland. However, this opened up over time and was a knockout with dinner. Soft and subtle, yet with plenty of structure. Quite light in color, which betrayed the fuller body. Aromas and flavors of blueberry, dried fruit, currant, and a touch of spice & leather. Overall I enjoyed this, but just a touch too AFWE for me.
Great previous notes below. This is an interesting wine. Felt mature to me. Felt more French and less Cali than many other of Pax's wines. I likes the floral, vegetal thing. Light color and good with foods. MMM.
Delicious. I hate to compare it to a French Rhone, but if this was served blind, that's what I would have guessed. Nicely restrained for a CA blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre. Good acid, medium weight. Ann and I killed this bottle and were left wanting more. Improved with a little air. Should drink well for a couple more years.
