Pax Syrah Griffin's Lair 2013

External Review:

The 2010 Syrah Griffins Lair Vineyard opens with beguiling, expressive aromatics. Deep, rich and resonant, the 2010 impresses for its detail and pure nuance. The aromas and flavors are masculine and imposing. Smoke, tar, iron graphite and incense all add to the wine’s exotic personality. This full-bodied Syrah is extremely varietally expressive and full of life. In sum, this is a terrific showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2020.

Glass-staining ruby. A flamboyantly perfumed bouquet displays scents of cherry liqueur, cassis, bitter chocolate, anise and espresso, complicated by notes of dried flowers. Then youthful and vibrant in the mouth, offering energetic, finely etched flavors of ripe blackberry and boysenberry. Creamy and powerful but with excellent focus and vivacity. The sweet dark berry flavors linger impressively on the smooth, gently tannic finish.
