2004 Pax "Castelli-Knight Ranch" Russian River Valley Syrah

SKU #1061422 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The profound 2004 Syrah Castelli-Knight Ranch was fashioned from another north-facing, rocky hillside parcel sourced by Pax Mahle and Joe Donelan. Fermented with 75% whole clusters and aged 17 months in French oak (40% new), it exhibits gorgeous aromas of barbecue smoke, roasted meats, tapenade, blackberries, and cassis. Tremendous ripeness, fabulous intensity, and no hard edges make for an opulent, stunning Syrah … (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2006)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Captivating aromas of cassis, blackberry, black pepper and spicy oak. A sweet, pliant, broad fruit bomb of a Syrah; wonderfully full, sweet and mouthcoating. Huge wine; the tannins are dusty and substantial but much less ferocious than those of the 2003. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense and concentrated, this firm, muscular youngster is packed with wild berry, pepper, earth and leather scents. Finishes with a rich, mouthcoating aftertaste but also with substantial tannins that may be with it for life. Decant. (JL) Inner quote mark (3/2007)
