True Syrah lovers line up around the block to get a taste of the wines of Pax Wine Cellars. They’re focused almost entirely on the production of premium vineyard-designated Syrah based wines and they are both critic and consumer darlings.
They focus on cooler climate sites in the Northern Coast of California which they believe is the place to be to make truly world-class Syrah. They use indigenous fermentations, minimal handling and the finest French Oak for their barrels and bottle without filtering or fining to bring to people the purest most unadulterated version of the fruit.
The 2021 Sonoma Hillsides Syrah is an absolute beauty – one that Antonio called, “one of the truly epic wines of the year”. If you love Syrah, you better snag a few bottles while we still have this 98-point beauty in stock.

98 Points, Antonio Galloni – Vinous
The 2021 Syrah Sonoma Hillsides is towering and statuesque in bearing from the very first taste. I don’t think I have ever tasted a Sonoma Hillsides with this much finesse, this much purity. A wine of vertical energy, the Sonoma Hillsides possesses tremendous depth from start to finish. In many vintages the Hillsides leans towards a darker expression of Syrah. The 2021, on the other hand, is marked by more of a red/purplish fruit profile, with bright floral and citrus overtones that confer freshness. Once again, Pax Mahle made one of the truly epic wines of the year. His Sonoma Hillsides has been one of the very finest wines in Northern California for a number of years now.
