As a long time lover of Pax Wines. These have changed with age. Once a powerhouse, it’s become more sublime. Aged Syrah is awesome, just different. Dry and elegant, with a dark fruit on the nose, the palate reveals blackberry and spicy and lots of black pepper. Rich mouthfeel and medium acidity. It’s all still there, but on it’s last leg. Still so good @Pax Mahle

1st gen Pax is big and hot. Surprisingly fresh nose though wife said cherry cordial. Huge fruit, dulled by age into raisin, mocha, molasses, beef jerky, campfire. The fruit might age further into deeper tertiary. Air brought out a whiff of herbs, a taste the modern Pax profile. Tannins are there but mild.

2007. Well integrated at this point and not as"big" as past bottles. Interesting, but never developed much of interest over time.

Holding up pretty well, but drink up if you have any.
