Pax Lauterbach Hill Syrah 2005


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

Intoxicating aromas of violets, lavender, raspberry preserves, bacon, nougat and espresso please the nose while the lush, supple concentration of sweet fruit and exotic spices is held round in the mouth. The finish is detailed and precise and brings a quartzy, liggonberry, wet stone, purple fruit quality.

Wine AdvocateThe fruit-forward 2005 Syrah Lauterbach is 100% Syrah with a dark ruby/purple color, beautiful density and ripeness, and sweet tannins in a velvety, up-front style. Some black raspberry as well as hints of lard and espresso roast are intermingled with the red and black fruits in this wine, which has a beautiful medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Robert Parker, December 2007
