While Dorothy sought out the Emerald City, my sights were set on the Emerald Pool - a bottle of Syrah made by Pax from the Alder Springs Vineyards located somewhere over the rainbow in Mendocino County. A technicolor experience on my palate, this wine mirrored the vibrancy of color when Dorothy first arrived in Oz, greeted by brilliant hues and floral landscapes. It's true that 'there's no place like home'. It's also true that 'there's no wine like Pax'. Cheers to Pax, with its dark ruby flavors that sparkle and shine like Dorothy's slippers.
