    May 25, 2020 - Fantastic - huge fresh fruit, very nicely integrated tannins - lots of life left on these, great acid. Full-bodied, medium+ finish. Olive, savory notes. Pepper, classic syrah nose. Unreal good stuff that has lots of life left if you're lucky enough to have some in your cellar.

    April 14, 2020 - Bright red Syrah fruit. Aging well. Not as meaty as other Pax Syrahs I’ve enjoyed from the mid 00s

    December 25, 2019 - Tasty blackberry and boysenberry on the nose and palate with earth and spice notes on the moderate finish.

    November 23, 2019 - Somewhat similar notes to previous tasting two years ago. Blackberries, plums, blueberries and licorice in the nose with blackberries and some earthiness in the flavor. Medium to full bodied, and a medium to long finish.

    September 29, 2019 - Aerated, decanted, held 30 minutes. Lived a perfect life in our cellar and still showing strongly with chewy black fruit, smoked leather, indistinguishable savory herbs in mid palate, acidity lingered with black pepper through the finish. Very enjoyable as we've come to know so many well aged Pax Syrahs. Perfect with dry rubbed BBQ bone-in ribeyes.
