Gryphon Merlot 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is pretty intense on the nose with truffle, oily herbs and jammy black fruit aromas of plum. An underlying grilled beefiness has some oaky top notes. This is a bit funky in the mouth with lots of truffle, carob and stewy fruit flavors. There's a nice pop of red plum on the back end along with a little raw wood, but the finish drops off rather quickly with hints of oak and candied fruit. Not my style. 80pts
