2014 Field Book Syrah (Griffin’s Lair Vineyard, Sonoma Coast)

Vinous Media, Antonio Galloni

The 2014 Syrah Field Book Griffin’s Lair Vineyard is a bit lighter than normal in this vintage, largely because of the inclusion of 12% Viognier, which really perks up the flavors. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, mint and apricot notes are nicely delineated. The flavors are bright and red-toned throughout, while the more varietal notes typical of this site are missing.
