Winemaking Notes: The Griffin 2016 is sourced from vineyards in the valley floor and mountain AVAs. The grapes were manually harvested in late September and early October 2016. Fermented for ten days and then aged in French oak barrels, this wine was bottled in May 2018.
Tasting Notes: The nose shows ripe black berry fruit with a floral hint. The wine is rich on the palate. Beautiful acidity and gentle tannins linger on a long finish.
