WALT "Griffin's Lair"
Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Owned and managed by Joan and Jim Griffin, Griffin’s Lair vineyard is located in the southern-most stretches of the Sonoma Coast appellation in the Lakeville region. The Pacific Ocean’s cooling, penetrating breezes and protective fog, matched with low-vigor soils and demanding farming practices result in super concentrated, complex fruit.
The aromatics of our 2010 WALT “Griffin’s Lair” Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir are unabashedly sauvage, exhibiting intense complexity of earthy spice, wild roast game and forest floor. Blue fruit and hints of rose petal intermingle on the palate– an exciting mélange of sensations. This wine is a powerful expression of vineyard site, and is a prime example of our minimalist winemaking.
