Come to a place of distinction as site expression shows a blend of finesse and power in the form of the 2016 Fiery Nights. The varietal Syrah leaps out of the glass aromatically with notes of charred cedar and savory meats along with back notes of dried raspberries. Dark and herbal scents of cracked black pepper, tobacco, and anise compliment sweet baking spice notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and allspice. A sweet entry on the palate is filled with gushing olallieberry jam and reduced notes of plums and strawberries. A moderate acid and velvety tannin drive down the center lane of the palate with sound resolve that lifts dried cranberry notes through into a long, tannin-filled finish. Drink now through 2025
