    March 28, 2021 - I have had a lot of bottle variation with a 6-pack I bought, but this bottle of 2013 Pax Griffin's Lair has been one of the better ones. It is a bit more subtle and more savory than most California Syrahs with grilled meats, smoke, herbs, and violets. I would drink these up over the next few years.

    April 8, 2020 - Both bottles tonight were dead. Such a contrast to the bottle that I had 18 months ago that was so young and full of life.

    March 2, 2020 - Smoky, minerals, dark fruit, dark cherries, wood, nice tannic grip

  • adammichael Likes this wine: 92 points

    February 24, 2019 - No decant although it may be be fun to...heavy bodied with a silky texture it shows a high line of violets, dark berries on nose, more red fruit on palate (not fruit forward by any sense) almost like a pomegranate tartness and defined smokiness. Still a lot of minerality, tannin and acidity to spare. Not exactly my style of Syrah, but very interesting and delicious.
