Pax Mahle (also consultant for the Monte Rio Label) started his career 20 years ago making wines that are influenced by one of his passions - the northern Rhone. Pax and I met working at 21 Federal Restaurant in Nantucket back in the 90’s and when I heard he was making wine I had to learn more. 20 years later, I consider him a good friend and a very gifted winemaker, not afraid to touch the boundaries of creativeness while also honoring time honored winemaking techniques... This 100% Syrah is a blend of components from all of their favorite vineyards on the north coast (Alder Springs , Griffins Lair, Castelli-Knight).
