Pax Syrah Griffin's Lair 2007

External Review:

The 2006 Syrah Griffin's Lair exhibits notes of espresso, blackberry, lead pencil shavings, some aged game (or is it smoked game?) with full body, incredibly dense fruit, sweet glycerin, and a long, heady finish. This is super wine that should drink ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2006 Pax Cellars Syrah Griffin's Lair 750ml

A rich, loamy, earthy style, with cedar, tobacco, dried currant, sage and spicy mineral and pebble flavors. Much like a Hermitage in its flavor profile and complexity. Drink now through 2012. 646 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2005 Pax Cellars Syrah Griffin's Lair 750ml

One of my favorite Pax offerings, the deep purple-colored 2004 Syrah Griffin s Lair is much lower in alcohol in 2004 (14.8%) than in previous vintages. Lovely aromas of blackberries, cassis, new saddle leather, roasted meats, and smoky barbecue are followed by a full-bodied wine with fabulous intensity, definition, and length. It requires 2-3 years of bottle age, and should last for two decades, making it one of the longest lived Pax Syrahs to date.

Medium ruby. Rustic, exotic aromas of blackberry, violet, gunflint, cured meats and black pepper; very syrah. Then smoky, pliant and creamy-sweet, with fat fruit given shape by ripe, harmonious acidity. Not quite as tight-grained as the Castelli-Knig... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
