(84% grenache, 14% syrah and 2% viognier, raised for 52 months in a combination of neutral oak (50%), stainless steel (30%) and new French oak (20%); 14.9% alcohol and 3.89 pH): Bright violet color. Perfumed bouquet displays cherry pit, black raspberry and potpourri, along with notes of incense and pungent herbs. Deeply concentrated dark fruit compote flavors are given lift by tangy minerality and pick up exotic violet pastille and star anise nuances with air. Shows impressive concentration and power, finishing with gentle grip, intense floral and spice notes and superb length. (JR)

The 2006 Agharta Black Label is 84% Grenache, 14% Syrah and 2% Viognier. Jammy blackberries, exotic spices, rose petals, licorice, tar and menthol are some of the notes that burst from the glass in this explosive, rich wine. The 2006 is an intriguing wine layered with considerable complexity and plenty of nuance. Pax Mahle gave the 2006 a whopping 52 months of aging, 70% in oak (20% new) and 30% in stainless steel. The Agharta Black Label is the same wine Pax Mahle bottled as Pangea under the Pax label. Jazz aficionados will recognize that both wines are named for two Miles Davis live albums that were recorded live on the same day in Japan in 1975.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
