($57; 100% syrah; 15.7% alcohol) Good deep ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry, violet and sweet new oak, all nicely lifted by a peppery component. Pure dark berry fruit offers a juicy character and very good intensity. A supple, sweet, fruit-driven wine that finishes with substantial ripe tannins and a lingering note of violet. "Pax wine with training wheels," notes Mahle, adding that this cuvee is made from the more forward and less tannic barrels and is designed for use by restaurants.
