This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

2005 Pax Kobler

Drinking at home.

2005 Pax Syrah Kobler Family Vineyard - started drinking 15 minutes after decanting. The nose was very ripe and sweet at first, almost jammy, and kinda sharp and alcoholic on the nose. Initially there was almost a faint dusty nose. The first sip was pretty dry on the palate, while the very fragrant nose showed cedar and leather notes. Second pour 45 minutes after decanting and the wine was really fragrant now, showing an even bigger woodsy nose with leather and meaty undertones. More sweet fruit on the nose about 1½ hours, and the tannins were still very much here. About 2½ hours after decanting the acidity was relatively high on the palate, but this new pour saw the wine still showing very nicely, still incredibly fragrant with woodsy notes and lots of potpourri, still meaty, and definitely more Rhône-like than Californian. Last pour not from the decanter but from the bottle 3 hours after opening, and the nose was still very jammy. Fantastic!
