Pax Cuvee Moriah 2005 1.5L


SKU C0160


Thick aromas of damp earth, tiny wild-strawberries, forest floor, green chartreuse, raspberry compote, white pepper, ripe plums and fennel pleasure the nose. In the mouth, lush red fruits, strawberry preserves, dusty earth, black plum, pepper, anise, layers of fruit spice & earth cascade over your palate. This wine is very complete and very complex at this early stage, really nuanced and intriguing, Yum!

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Syrah Cuvee Moriah (a blend of 75% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and 1% Roussanne) is deep ruby/purple with huge amounts of peppery black raspberry and kirsch notes, a touch of underbrush and fennel as well as a long, heady finish. This is sumptuous, puncheon-aged wine that is big on fruit, complexity, and deliciousness. This is not one for making old bones, so drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Robert Parker, December 2007
