Robert Foley 2017 The Griffin Red 1.5l
Like its namesake, this Griffin is a powerful combination of strengths.The blended characters of Petite Sirah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Charbono and Syrah deliver rich raspberry flavors balanced with fresh acidity. Having just enough grip in the finish makes this a very approachable, versatile, food-friendly red wine.
The Griffin offers a well-balanced blend of classic claret varieties and my favorite Rhone-rooted varieties. The 2017 vintage is 30% Petite Sirah, 26% Merlot, 21% Petit Verdot, 14% Charbono, and 9% Syrah.
