Pax Griffin's Lair Syrah 2003
Wine AdvocateLovers of bacon fat, roasted meat juices, herbs, pepper, and spice will enjoy the extroverted, exuberant 2003 Syrah Griffin's Lair. Superb richness and density along with loads of lard and bacon fat characteristics dominate this complex, aromatic, full-throttle Syrah. It can be drunk now or cellared for 7-8 years
Wine SpectatorA highly distinctive style that's bold, rich and beefy, with beef carpaccio, white pepper, huckleberry and anise flavors that are lean, tight and focused, finishing with a spicy tobacco edge and firm but ripe tannins. Needs decanting now. Best from 2007 through 2012. 368 cases made.
