LAST CALL for 95 Point Syrah Gem … 12.5% Alc. for those who want “lower” alcohol wines

Many of Wind Gaps’ vineyards are planted along or are directly influenced by one wind gap or another.  These geological breaks in the coastal hills funnel wind inland and strongly influence the growing and ripening of the grapes.  It seems only fitting that their name should celebrate the forces of nature that are shaping their wines.

Wine lovers will know the name Pax Mahle from his first winery – PAX – which garnered high scores and much notoriety.  Though he has always been influenced by French styles of winemaking, it was the bold, powerful Syrahs that first brought praise and attention to Pax in his new chapter as Sommelier-turned-Winemaker.

Wind Gap 2014 Syrah “Armagh”

Saturated with savory elements including iron, anise, plum and brown spice on the deep dark aromas of this dense red wine.  This is definitely the scary side of Syrah…meat jus, seared meat, iron. Blackberries and spicy stem notes create a classically structured Syrah that is built to improve in your cellar for many years to come.”

Anthony Galloni 95 Points: “The 2014 Syrah Armagh Vineyard is the richest and deepest of these Syrahs from Wind Gap. Ferrous notes open up first, followed by a host of dense, meaty, peppery notes that add character. There is wild, feral quality to the Armagh that I find especially appealing. Dense and powerful, but in the classic Wind Gap style, the 2014 Armagh is fabulous today.”

Winemaker Notes: “The Armagh Vineyard saw one of its most successful seasons in a few years, more reminiscent of the 2010 or 2008 versions of this wine, this 2014 is rich, textured and loaded with ripe, succulent fruit, spice and savory Syrah elements. Probably one of the most powerful Syrahs we have labeled under the Wind Gap label and the polar opposite of the 2014 Majik Syrah, this one needs a big slab of meat or a couple of years in your cellar.
