Winemaker's Notes:

"A young, grapey, deliciously spicy syrah with plenty of bright, juicy berry flavors. It clocks in at 14.2% alcohol, easily supported by the dense, deep fruit. Great now, or cellar it as you would a great zinfandel. Best Buy."
-Wine Enthusiast
My Notes:

About Barnard Griffin Winery:

Barnard Griffin Winery was established in 1983 by Winemaker Rob Griffin and his wife, Deborah Barnard. Rob saw the opportunity to make great wine in Washington and moved north in 1977. Pleased with his move to Washington, he says "The northern latitude of Washington and the ideally drained sandy soils of the Columbia Valley make it possible to produce deeply concentrated wines of pronounced character."
