Color of mix of orange, grapefruit, and ruby, quite light and clear. Nose of concentrated aldehyde, crayon, black pepper, oak, a bit plummy, and hint of strong alcohol. Taste follows the nose, with addition of nice strawberry, ripe grapes, and savory powerful tannins. Aftertaste is long with more black pepper, nice subtle sweetness, long and really savory. — 4 hours ago
Very quaffable. It’s like nectar. Fruit driven, whole cluster notes. Not overly rich, silky texture. Simple and straightforward. A well made wine. — 22 days ago
Rose, pepper, blueberries, crazy long tannins. Really great. Look forward to trying these over the next few years. — a month ago
A tightly-wound and fresh style of Grenache. Nose has hibiscus flowers, tart raspberry, cracked stones, and whiff of baking spice. Savory and tight in the mouth, with a bitter whack of flavor initially, with fruit coming in as the finish winds down. Very good acidity. Good dinner accompaniment. — a month ago
I look forward to seeing where this goes in the next 5 years. Jammy and berries all over. — 7 days ago
Likely the last of Wind Gap for me - Pax sold stake to his partner (Charles Banks who is in prison for fraud). Pax will continue to make wine under the “Pax” label - his style always favors cool climate, low ABV, lean, whole cluster, not too out there but true to the natural wine sermon.
The 2013 Pinot is soft. Supple raspberry, boysenberry, and wild strawberry. Brick color from 6 years of age. It sings the New California song. — 20 days ago
Good stuff. Finesse and complexity make for a lovely drink. — 22 days ago
