2004 Pax "Griffin's Lair" Sonoma Coast Syrah

SKU #1078061 94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 One of my favorite Pax offerings, the deep purple-colored 2004 Syrah Griffin’s Lair is much lower in alcohol in 2004 (14.8%) than in previous vintages. Lovely aromas of blackberries, cassis, new saddle leather, roasted meats, and smoky barbecue are followed by a full-bodied wine with fabulous intensity, definition, and length. It requires 2-3 years of bottle age, and should last for two decades, making it one of the longest lived Pax Syrahs to date.  (12/2005)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium ruby. Spicy aromas of raw plum, smoked meat, pepper and exotic fruits. Lush, pliant and sweet, with a distinctly saline quality to the creamy flavors of game, beef blood, black licorice, mint and woodsmoke. Chewy but not heavy. The vines in the Petaluma wind gap typically produce tiny berries, notes Mahle. Boasts a large tannic structure yet shows lovely sweetness.  (6/2006)
