One of our favorite red blends from Napa Valley - Highly Recommended. Ultra purple in color, this proprietary red blend offers complex aromas of wild berries, camphor and violet blossoms. Expansive black cherry flavors couple with a well-balanced acidity and evenly gripping tannin. A mouthful of red wine! The 2015 Griffin is a blend of 32% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petite Sirah, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Syrah, 9% Charbono. The blend changes every vintage, so stock up if you find a favorite, as next year’s bottle will be a surprise. 95 Points Brix26: "The Griffin Proprietary Red is a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Petite Sirah. A winemaker’s dream is to be artistically free to combine characters into wine that is purely hedonic and non-compliant with varietal regulations, so the Griffin's blend will change with every vintage. A pleasure from nose to finish, it has a very aromatic nose, followed by a lush mouthfeel and a medium to full bodied palate If you like blends like Orin Swift's The Prisoner or Buoncristiani's O.P.C., this one is a must-have.”
Really enjoyed this blend. Vibrant, fresh, cool dark fruits with espresso, licorice, and mild tones of baking spices and black spoil to add depth and complexity. Delicious with prime rib.
