The 2011 Syrah Griffin's Lair wraps around the palate with great intensity. There is a raw, animal power to the Griffin's Lair that is impossible to miss. The addition of 12% Viognier with 60% whole clusters gives the wine a dimension of aromatic lift and vibrancy that is hugely appealing. A multitude of red fruits, tobacco, smoke, new leather and iron are layered into the finish. A gorgeous, complete wine, the 2011 Griffin's Lair is stunning. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021.
