2008 Fiery Nights - Syrah
Briarwood Estate Vineyard

Fiery Nights is our pure expression of Westside Paso Robles Syrah. From a single block of calcareous soil at Briarwood, it is comprised of clones 383 and Alban 2. This 100% Syrah is meant to highlight the layers and complexity of the varietal, as well as express how our terroir influences its character. Our proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the consistent afternoon flow of cool Templeton Gap breezes allows our Syrah to achieve characters of both a warm and cool climate. Seeking finesse over power, the fruit was hand picked in September at ideal ripeness and treated gently, including multiple hand sorting and whole berry fermentation. The resultant wine is balanced, complex, and pure, just as we wanted it.

The nose speaks of rich, juicy plums highlighted by baking spices, licorice and sweet ginger notes. The palate is round and balanced with good weight that avoids being heavy. Flavors mirror the aromas, with dark fruits taking center stage. To sum it up clearly, Fiery Nights is a wine with old world class and new world sass.
