Pop, pour and stunned. Smoke, meat, salty, bacony elements all came through in spades. Essences of Syrah did reveal dark berry fruit, but the savory elements were the focus (and remained the focus 24 hours later). Balanced, savory and long on the palate, firm tannins backed up the fruit, promising years of further development, but sadly this was my last bottle.

Pax Mahle really is a wizard with Syrah.
