100% See-RA
Syrah is widely planted throughout the world, but that was not so until the late twentieth century when Syrah was principally grown in the Rhone Valley and, as Shiraz, in Australia. Stylistically, the Palate Character of Syrah can vary depending on ripeness from a rich Round & Fleshy, Tone & Backbone, to a Powerful & Extracted. The flavors and aromas can also vary with a dark, sometimes sweet, fruit character, varying amount of spice, floral, and earth, and smoke, and meaty aromas and flavors.

Pax

Sonoma, California


Pax and Pam Mahle moved to wine country in 1997 to pursue a career in the wine business. After a few years tasting and sourcing Californian wines for Dean and Deluca, Pax decided to launch his own brand, and in 2000 made his first wine. 


Pax’s focus was syrah, working with growers in cool-climate vineyards from Mendocino and Sonoma. He is extremely selective of the vineyards he works with, weighing location, soil, exposition, the dedication of growers, and sustainability. 

Pax wines seek to balance ripe grapes with good acidity to yield powerful yet structured and nuanced wines.
