Pax Syrah Emerald Pool 2005
Blackberry pie, creosote, summer fruit compote, wood-smoke, fresh espresso and pepper lurk in the thick aromas of this wine. In the mouth supple but intense fruits, spices and crushed stone flavors lead into a thick mid palate of sweet black & blue fruit pie. The finish is quite long and extended by ripe tannins that give this monstrous Syrah a pleasingly clean finish of salty extract.
External Reviews for Pax Syrah Emerald Pool
ST: Opaque purple. Sexy blackberry, mulberry and candied licorice aromas, with a gentle graphite accent. Silky in texture, displaying a full array of sweet dark berry flavors and outstanding depth and focus. Very fine tannins add support to this extroverted bundle of fresh fruit, with tangier red berry notes coming on with air. The fruit carries impressively through the bright, seamless finish. This is the highest in alcohol of this year's releases at 14.8%.
Bright red violet color; very enticing nose of black cherry, caramel, mocha, blackberries; tasty, balanced blackberry and blueberry fruit with well integrated caramel oak; medium-plus finish
Inky violet. This smells uncannily , with potent dark berry, smoked meat and violet scents complicated by graphite and iron.
2005 was perhaps the finest vintage ever in the young history of Pax. You don't want to wait for the score and miss out on acquiring this ultra-rare gem!
