Wind Gap's 2007 'Griffin's Lair' Syrah comes from a special vineyard site in Sonoma's Petaluma Gap, so high in elevation that it stands above the majority of plantings in the area. Managed by Joan and James Griffin, the Griffin's Lair Vineyard is planted to Syrah and Pinot Noir, and has produced premium fruit for a number of award-winning wines.

The 2007 Wind Gap 'Griffin's Lair' Syrah exhibits an outstanding density of flavors that are directly attributed to the cool windy site and its close proximity to the Bay. Vibrant red in kcolor with a black-cherry-pit of a core, this Syrah is hugely rich with aromas of ripe fruit, cassis, blackberries, plums, and mincemeat pie. A thick yet finely knit, velvety-textured mid-palate guides you to the structured finish that brings with it notes of pomegranate and crisp, dried berries.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar awards this 2007 Syrah an outstanding 93 Points and Robert Parker follows up with an impressive 92 Point score: "Dark purple to the rim and more rustic and savage is the dense, rich, tannic, broddingly backward 2007 Syrah, Griffin's Lair." A beautiful wine!
