Pax Wines have a holistic approach to their winemaking. It’s done by taking care to use only grapes that are grown without the use of chemicals and by hand making their wines with as little intervention as possible. As a result, all of their wines are crushed by foot and hand, and fermented using only natural yeasts.
The Alder Springs Vineyard is one of California’s most iconic vineyard sites. Perched high above the tiny northern California town of Laytonville, this patchwork of lieu-dits is more reminiscent of the great vineyards of the Rhone Valley than anything in California. This wine is exotic and perfumed and all about the tension between harmony and power. Supple and weightless with salty minerals, spicy stems and gorgeous purple fruit. as pure expression of Syrah that can be captured in a bottle.
