Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"My favorite wine of all the 2012s was the 2012 Syrah Griffin’s Lair Vineyard (274 cases). Opaque purple-colored with notes of beef blood, bouquet garni, volcanic, scorched earth and wet pebbles, the wine is complex, has great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish. This is terrific Syrah that seems to represent a wonderful, hypothetical blend between the elegance of French wine and the power and purity of California’s stunning fruit."

Product Description:

"This southwest-facing hillside is covered in coarse sand and gravel, which allows the vines’ roots to dig deeply and hang on tight as the wind whips across this slope. Traditional winemaking techniques, such as utilizing indigenous yeasts, foot-crushing 100% whole clusters, judicious extraction during fermentation and aging in neutral French oak barrels ensure that this wine is a pure expression of Sonoma Coast Syrah.
