Noted winemaker Pax Mahle sought to return to traditional methods for his Pax label (while his Wind Gap label is geared toward more esoteric varietals.) Working with distinctive organically farmed cool-climate sites, Mahle's focus is on small production, minimal intervention winemaking, with native yeast fermentations, and no fining or filtering. He seeks to let the terroir and the vintage speak through the wine. This 2006 single-vineyard Syrah is dark and brambly, with floral highlights. This vineyard yields Syrah with classic Northern Rhone characteristics, and the cool climate keeps acidity fresh and alcohols naturally low. This can be enjoyed tonight or cellared further towards greater complexity.
