Robert Foley The Griffin Red 2018 750ml


16 bottles in stock

Super dark in color, the contributions of Petite Sirah and Syrah are immediately
evident. Aromas of ripe red and black fruit marry with a hint
of cedar. On the palate this ripe rich red blend is amazingly lively – the
weight of the Rhône varieties balanced perfectly by the mid-palate of
our classic Merlot. A bit of Charbono completes the dance! Having
just enough grip in the finish makes this a very approachable, versatile,
food-friendly red wine.

Like its namesake, this Griffin is a powerful combination of strengths.
This year’s blend is 44% Merlot, 40% Petite Sirah, 14% Syrah, and 2%

The Griffin – on the Foley family crest in Irish heraldry combines the
strengths of the lion, king of beasts, with the eagle, king of the skies. A
winemaker’s dream is to be artistically free to combine characters into
wine that is purely hedonic and non-compliant with varietal regulations,
so The Griffin’s blend changes with every vintage.
