Pax Castelli-Knight Syrah 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

100 % Syrah 40 % new French Oak 16.55 % Alc by Vol 3.89 pH 275 cases produced Tasting Note: Fresh cracked black pepper, iron and spicy blackberry pie. Humongous in the mouth, (this one goes to 11) with outrageously sweet fruit, mouthwatering acidity, teeth-staining tannin and that density of palate that you can only get from low yielding vines grown on a rocky hillside. More soil inflected flavors of iron and spice lead into a ripe tannic finish. So basically this is typical Castelli-Knight Ranch Syrah!
