Barnard Griffin 2013 Syrah Port

wins Platinum and Best of The Best

Barnard Griffin 2013 Syrah Port wins PLATINUM and BEST OF THE BEST The dean of Washington winemakers is perched atop the best wines of the Pacific Northwest.

Rob Griffin arrived in Washington from his native California in 1977 and was head winemaker for Preston Wine Cellars and Hogue Cellars before focusing all of his attention on his own Barnard Griffin in Richland. At the 16th annual Platinum Judging, Griffin’s fortified dessert wine made with Syrah was the No. 1 wine out of a record 698 entries.

It also was Griffin’s 20th Platinum in the competition’s first 16 years, an effort that leaves him tied for fifth best of all time.

The Platinum Judging, conducted by Wine Press Northwest magazine, is a beauty contest. Only wines from Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho that have won gold medals at any of about 40 competitions worldwide in 2015 are eligible to enter.
