Lovers of bacon fat roasted meat juices herbs pepper and spice will enjoy the extroverted exuberant 2003 Syrah Griffin's Lair. Superb richness and density along with loads of lard and bacon fat characteristics dominate this complex aromatic full-throttle Syrah. It can be drunk now or cellared for 7-8 years.

Then smoky pliant and creamy-sweet with fat fruit given shape by ripe harmonious acidity. Not quite as tight-grained as the Castelli-Knight but offers lovely inner-mouth aromatic character and enticing sappy fruit. Conveys a distinctly tiny-berry concentration. Finishes long and ripe. This needs bottling.
