2012 Field Book Syrah (Griffin’s Lair Vineyard, Sonoma Coast)

Vinous Media, Antonio Galloni

The 2012 Syrah Field Brook, from Griffin’s Lair in Sonoma, is once again terrific. In 2012, the Syrah shows distinctly red-toned characteristics and a bit less varietal character than the more typical dark fruit and intensely gamy profile that are more commonly in this site. A dash of Viognier and 15-20% whole clusters add lift to the red stone fruits, flowers, mint and spices in a pretty Syrah to drink over the next handful of years. 93 points (December 2014)
