Pax “Keltie” Syrah, North Coast 2005

Purple/red.

Nose of tapenade, menthol, smoked meat, leather and game. Food not fruit.

Vinous, with no extraneous textural sweetness. Tannic density apparent immediately, saturating the front teeth completely. Still very much an infant, this needs years in a good cellar. But all the stuffing is there for killer drinking by 2020 and years after.

$65. A 100% whole cluster wine from many vineyards (I think)..
