"The 2019 Trousseau Gris Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard is one of the highlights in this range. Cranberry, citrus and floral notes give the 2019 terrific energy as well as nuance. Deceptively light in color and body, the 2019 packs a serious punch. More importantly, it is flat-out delicious."
Pax and Pam Mahle moved to California in 1997 to pursue careers in wine, and after a few years of tasting and sourcing wine from all over the state for Dean & Deluca, Pax realized he needed to be on the frontlines of winemaking rather than behind the scenes, and made the decision to start his own brand in 2000. The Mahles made the bold choice of favoring the “untapped potential” of the Syrah grape at that time. Initially known for his rich and powerful expressions of Syrah that put him on the map, Pax’s style took a major turn to fresher, lower alcohol profiles as he began working with new vineyard sources in cooler, coastal areas of Sonoma. His wines today are balanced and elegant, with a nod to the Old World.
