Winemaking Notes: The Griffin 2017 is sourced from vineyards in the valley floor and mountain AVAs. The grapes were manually harvested in late September and early October 2017. Fermented for ten days and then aged in French oak barrels, this wine was bottled in May 2019.
Tasting Notes: The blended characters of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Charbono and Syrah deliver rich raspberry flavors balanced with fresh acidity. Having just enough grip in the finish makes this a very approachable, versatile, food-friendly red wine.
