Pax Alder Springs Syrah 2005
Floral and stony with layers of earth, fruit and spice in the lively aromatics. Intense red and black raspberries, roasted coffee, maduro tobacco, pure berry fruit, vibrant mineral, graphite, melted licorice and bitter chocolate float across the palate. The finish brightens a bit with assertive red currants, fresh flowers and transparent pure fruit. Never a huge wine, just a hugely sexy wine.
