94pts - Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Pax and Pam Mahle moved to wine country in 1997 to and decided to make a bold choice by favoring the untapped potential of the۝Syrah grape. The entire lineup of wines came from cool climate vineyards in Sonoma County and Mendocino. The wines were big, rich expressions of Syrah that went on to be highly sought after and quickly established Pax as one of California€۪s premier producers of Syrah.

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Syrah Castelli-Knight Ranch is 100% Syrah and the biggest cuv̩e of the wines I tasted (395 cases). This wine offers up notes of blackberries, licorice, a touch of tapenade and peppery spice with a hint of bacon fat. It€۪s fresh, medium to full-bodied, long, rich and best drunk over the next 7-8 years. Drink: 2015 - 2023." Dec 2014

Winery: "Black pepper and blackberries fight for dominance in the aromas of this very full-bodied wine from this small, special site. Very concentrated, with ripe tannins and layers of fruit and spice. "
