Griffin's Lair is one of the top sites on the Sonoma Coast for Syrah and when combined with Karen Culler's excellent reputation with the varietal, good things are expected. No disappointment here! It has received 90-92 points from Robert Parker. <br><br/> Very dark in color, primal aromas of tarry, smoky cherry and leather. The palate is beautifully focused black raspberry, smooth yet firm on the finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
