2003 PAX Castelli-Knight Ranch, Syrah, Russian River Valley, SonomaI decanted this wine for three hours. Super rich deep dark color. On the nose; leather, tar, white pepper, and pomegranate. Did I say white pepper? Because this was the predominant attribute that never quit. Not showing much fruit, as to be expected, but I have had this before, and it showed much better. (so much so I seeked out 4). Big serious tannins. This is a super extracted wine, the kind loved by many, but probably not me. Super dry on the finish. I should have saved a glass worth for the next day. I suspect this should be great by 2013, but I will never know.

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Syrah 3.0 Tons per acre 15.6 % Alc. By Vol. pH - 3.8 460 Cases Produced Release Date - Spring 2005 (April) Tasting Note: Black Pepper, white pepper, leather, asian spice and blackberries. Sweet blackberries, more pepper and exotic gamey/meaty flavors intermingle on the dense and super concentrated palate of this wine. The tannins are big, ripe and spicy giving this wine its structure and adding another dimension of exotic spices.
