“Total Knock Out” 95 Point 2013 PAX Syrah Griffin’s Lair Sonoma Coast

Posted on: 12/19/18 8:09 PM


The demand for Pax continues to be uncontrollable.

We’re afraid we’ve unleashed a monster and the only way to stop it (or perhaps make it worse) is to provide you with more.

That’s why we jumped on the small (but heavily sought after) allocation of the 2013 Syrah Griffins Lair. Hot damn is this baby delicious! Dense and sweetly fruited, armed with laser like precision and focus, we’re absolutely thrilled with this bottle. Anyone who enjoys artisanal California wine will walk away with little doubt that Pax Mahle is the guy for Syrah.

Loaded with dark fruit, salty, savory plums, milk chocolate, cracked leather, spice, pepper and sugared cherries, this baby did not last long over here. Only a few cases are available so grab as much of this as possible–just in time for the Christmas roast!

We can’t urge enough for you to act fast on this one. Just like the rest of the Pax offerings, once it’s gone, IT’S GONE!

2013 PAX Syrah Griffin’s Lair Sonoma Coast

“The 2013 Syrah Griffins Lair Vineyard is another utterly compelling, vivid wine. Dark red plum, pomegranate, blood orange exotic spices infuse the mid palate, followed by wilder, gamier notes that develop over time. A blast of ripe red cherry, smoke, game and cured meats puts an exclamation point on this striking Syrah from Pax Wine Cellars. Precise and nuanced, but with tons of intensity, the Griffin’s Lair is a total knock-out. Don’t miss it!” 95 Points, Antonio Galloni
