Pax Obsidian Syrah 2005 1.5L


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Sweet blackberry pie, blueberries, pipe tobacco, little white flowers and maple syrup are all included in the dark aromas this wine offers. A massive attack of thick blackberry, pink pepper, purple and white flowers, ultra concentrated sweet tar dipped blueberries and black fruit make for one of the most opulent young Syrahs I have ever tasted. The thick middle has brown spice, tar, white rocks, baking spice and fig compote. The finish has sweet tannins and continues the cacophony of fruit and spice long after the wine has been swallowed. The tannins catch-up with your palate once all of the massive fruit has faded and clinch in briefly before disintegrating into a long dusty chocolaty finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Syrah Obsidian is a 540-case cuvee offering a beautiful black/purple color as well as sumptuous aromas of blackberries, scorched earth, smoke, and frying lard. It's a big, full-bodied, powerful effort that, like its siblings, will not be very charming in its youth. It will require 3-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20-25 years. Score range: 93-95 points.
