95 Points - James Halliday "From a favourable parcel in the Amery Vineyard. A fine example of how the best suitors of grenache in the Vale marry a chiaroscuro of weightlessness with a rich core of fruit intensity. A steer of sandy tannins, a riff of briar and a long pull by the region's maritime freshness. Textbook. Poached strawberry, anise, kirsch, orange peel, cranberry, bergamot and myriad florals. But the tannins are what make me swoon."

94 Points - Joe Czerwinski (RobertParker.com) The 2019 Griffon's Key Grenache—basket-pressed and aged in well-seasoned French oak puncheons—continues the winery's recent tradition of excellence with this variety. On the nose, it's perfumed and complex, with herbal, floral and raspberry nuances. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied yet seems almost airy in feel, with a weblike structure of silken tannins providing structure without weight, while the mouthwatering finish brings further definition to the star anise, rose petal and red berry flavors. It should drink well for up to a decade, but there's no real reason to wait.
