Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2020 vintage of Griffin’s Cuvée shows more red fruit than we normally see in this blend. Aromas of pomegranate, just-ripe blackberry, cherry tobacco, and cedar jump out of the glass. The bold tannins are supported by a full body and balanced with bright acidity. The flavors mirror the aroma, with additional notes of baked cherry, granite, and mesquite, and grilled plum. The lengthy finish highlights baking spices with integrated tannin from 30% new French oak barrel aging.
