Unctuous and richly textured with smoked meats, black fruits and toasty oak. In a word, yummy! Drink now - 2020.

Opaque slightly cloudy violet color with expansive floral, mixed black fruit, olives, and bacon fat aromas. On the palate it's medium/full bodied, with a harmonious structure, supple texture, sweet dusty tannins and abundant blackberry, plum, black raspberry, cacao, and subtle spice flavors and an appealing kiss of minerality. Long finish. 14% alcohol

A rare Gryphon that is drinkable young, but that's '12 for you. Expressive.

Think it's a new release, Incredible texture, teeth staining, inky purple, planted in 2000 on a west facing hill over the San Pablo Bay, Southern Petaluma Gap, constant afternoon wind. Intense, amazing structure, violets, raspberries, pepper, meat, funk. 50% WC, Viognier co-fermented, Feels like it's going to age for a long time, has everything, alcohol, acid and tannin, probably coming back to the next bottle in 2024. Ridiculous wine.

First vintage. Dark and brooding, but still vibrant.
