Pax Mahle landed in Napa Valley in 1997. Following a stint as a wine buyer at Dean & Deluca, he started producing wines. He particularly focused on cool climate Syrah. With the launch of Wind Gap in Petaluma, he began to focus on lower alcohol Pinot Noir sourced from organic and low-intervention vineyards.
This wine is a blend of several vineyards.
Wind Gap's Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is once again terrific in 2012. Wild flowers, mint, violets and dark varietal fruits lift from the glass, with a lovely layer of savory overtones from the 100% whole clusters. In 2013, the core of the blend is Nellessen, but the exuberance of that site is nicely balanced by some of the more restrained fruit sources. All the elements come together in an effortless, gracious Syrah that delivers fabulous quality and personality, all at an exceedingly fair price. ~94VM
