A rich and earthy Gamay Noir with bright red fruit and warm spice, backed by delicate tannins and natural acidity.
Variety: 100% Gamay Noir
Vineyard: Black Knight Vineyard
Location: Sonoma Coast, CA
Plums, fresh tilled earth, cinnamon stick and black raspberry aromas fill the alluring nose of this deeply saturated wine. Luscious fruit fills the palate, but the delicate tannins and some serious natural acidity frame this wine and gives it the room it needs to strut its pure Sonoma Coast fruit.
100% whole cluster fermented with partial carbonic maceration. Aged in neutral French oak barrels for 10 months.
Pax is the first winery to produce and release a Gamay Noir from the Sonoma Coast. Black Knight Vineyard grows both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and in 2014 they grafted an older block of Chardonnay over to Gamay Noir.
