2014 Vintage from Eden Valley. Ruby red with garnet hues. Alluring aromas of wild red currant and raspberry, spiced cherry and Turkish delight with underlying nuances of rosehip, tobacco leaf and charcuterie. Dried rosemary and spice complexity, sit upon a well-structured palate with a driving red currant acidity, enveloping core of fine-grained and creamy tannins, which persist for a beautifully long finish. Matured for 10 months in used French hogsheads, This is a truly remarkable and enjoyable wine. — 22 days ago

An unexpected surprise from our host, Paul Lister, at Alladale Lodge where he produced a mixed half dozen of 2004 Pax Syrah from different vineyards left by a former guest. A marvellous fragrant nose showing mature smoky meaty Syrah notes with savoury black cherry - also Bacon fat. Similar notes carrying thru onto the palate finishing with mellow resolved flowing Tannins. The 16.2 % ABV not noticeable. This wine was reminiscent of Henschke Hill of Grace for me. Cork broke in half trying to extract but in no way effected the wine. My first aged US Syrah and most impressed. — 4 months ago
Red fruits with touches of raspberry and oak on the nose. On the medium weight palate lovely mouthfilling red fruits - the product of old vines with the trademark silky Henschke medium weight Tannins. Always a wonderful wine. The 2006 has. Short term future up to 5 years more. — 5 months ago
