  • What we love

    Love meaty and textured Syrah from the Northern Rhone? Then Pax Mahle’s North Coast Syrah needs to be on your radar. A bowl of summer fruits including sweet blackberries, raspberries, black olives, and pomegranates are highlighted by black pepper, violets and fresh green olive scents that develop and evolve with air. Vivacious and bright in the mouth with real density of flavor and concentration from the long, cool growing season. A subtle carbonic pop enlivens all of that intensity making this Syrah very satisfying on its own with a good chill or served with a burger fresh off of the grill.

$34.00

About this Wine

Launched in 2000, Pax and Pam Mahle created their namesake winery with the goal of highlighting the ‘untapped potential’ of Syrah in California. This 100% Syrah is a blend of components from their favorite vineyards on the north coast, all of which are sustainably and organically farmed. The wine is fermented 100% whole-cluster, aged in a combination of concrete and oak.
