Review:
Iron, smoke, game, licorice, spice, lavender, and inky dark fruit are some of the many notes that develop in Pax's 2018 Syrah Armagh Vineyard. Dark and brooding, the Armagh is a muscular Syrah that is going to need a few years in bottle to be at its very best. Even so, it is pretty impressive today. - Antonio Galloni
