Bright ruby red. Lovely and layered nose with an attack of floral notes, roses, lilacs, eucalyptus, and some blue fruits. Has some herbal undertones, vanilla, and spices. A touch savory with air. Balanced acidity with medium tannins (6/10). Layered palate with red berries, twigs, a touch savory, and cherries. Great mouthfeel and keeps changing over time. Medium bodied with a medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2021. (91+)

First wine we have tried from Agharta Wines and first Cabernet from Pax. Beautiful ruby red with a dark core. Great complexity and layers on the nose, starting with an attack of fresh blueberries and opens up to a few savory and tons of floral notes. Beautiful bouquet of roses, lavendar and lilac with a smokey undertone and a touch of eucalyptus. Nose just keeps changing as it opens. Overall great mouthfeel and well rounded. Moderate tannins (5/10) that is coated in red cherries and raspberries. Moderate body and moderate plus finish. A little shorter than we would have liked but very well integrated. Overall pretty good bargin at around $30 a bottle. Drink till 2021.

Thought it was a blend then thought it was from Cali then thought it was from Sonoma then thought it was a single varietal, and then thought it was a cab sauv....not really. Tremendous display of restraint and composure. Very blue though.

Crazy site. Way way up. Going through a major replant so if you can try some wines from here, Pax is a great place to start.

Color of mix of ruby, purple, and brown. Quite light considering she is a cab. Nose is beautiful with ripe cherry, strawberry, oak, crayon, aldehyde, spice, a bite cocoa, and more aldehyde note. Taste follows the nose, with mellow tannins, just right amount of sweetness, spice, juicy grapes, blackberry, a bit menthol, vanilla, a bit grassy tobacco leaves, zest on the rim of the tongue, and simply tasty. Aftertaste is medium with some more peppery note, grapes, tobacco leaves, and subtle sweetness. Beautiful. Agharta delivers again.
