About This Item

Pax and Pam Mahle moved to California wine country in 1997. After tasting and sourcing wine for Dean & Deluca, Pax launched Pax Wine Cellars in 2000 with Alder Springs Vineyard, a vineyard he immediately felt a kismet connection with. The Mahle’s decided to make a bold choice by favoring the untapped potential of the Syrah grape. The entire lineup of wines comes from cool climate vineyards in Sonoma County and Mendocino. The wines are big, rich expressions of Syrah that are highly sought after and quickly established Pax as one of California’s premier producers of Syrah.  The Pax portfolio has since evolved beyond Syrah to include new and exciting varieties like Chenin Blanc, Gamay, Carignan, and Trousseau Gris.

 

Pax approaches winemaking holistically.  They take great care in using only grapes that are grown without chemicals and with as little intervention as possible in the winery. Grapes are crushed the old-fashioned way, by foot and hand, fermented using only natural yeast, and finished without adding sulphites.

 

Fermented in concrete, the Pax Trousseau Gris Rosé is a welcome addition to the Pax line-up.  The 2018 is fuller in body compared to previous vintages with more exotic aromas. Operating somewhere between a vin gris and a rosé, it’s mouthwateringly bright and fresh, yet wild.  This makes it extremely versatile when pairing with food, or it can be easily enjoyed on its own.
