2010 Pax "Alder Springs" Mendocino County Syrah

SKU #1211714 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (made with 60% whole clusters and 30% new oak): Saturated ruby. Cherry and dark berry preserves on the nose, with complicating notes of licorice and olive tapenade. Lively, penetrating bitter cherry and blackberry flavors stain the palate, showing excellent clarity and a zesty mineral nuance that builds with air. Finishes very long, with gentle tannins and lingering sweetness, leaving a smoky cherry note behind. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

89 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard is one of the better wines in the range. Black fruit, tar, smoke, licorice and incense are all woven together nicely. The 2010 has more than enough intensity and pure fruit to stand up to the firm tannins. The Alder Springs is another attractive wine that falls just a bit short of being truly exciting and distinctive. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2013)
