Griffin’s Lair Syrah

Black to the core with deep purple hints of color, this wine looks monstrous. Upon further inspection it is deeply concentrated and intense, but lifted with salt air and vibrant fresh summer fruits. The flavors are intense and classic Syrah, but never veer into the baked or cooked realm…this vineyard has always walked the line between huge and coastal cool and this year is no exception.
