2005 Pax Cuvee Moriah

Served this with a simple roast chicken dinner at home. I have a love/hate relationship with Pax. Sometimes they rock, often they leave me feeling underwhlemed. And they aint cheap.

2005 Pax Cuvée Moriah ($50 - USA, California, Sonoma County (5/16/2009)Nose shows some rich plum and licorice. Palate is loaded with blackberry and pepper. Pepper and more pepper. Dark and tarry, it opens nicely with air and fleshes out a bit. Briary finish. Showing well, not an earth-mover, but a nice drink. If I had more, I'd drink 'em over the next few years. A little air and ready to go. Primarily grenache (80%), with syrah, mourvedre, cinsault.
