The beauty of this wine is in the sourcing, as we can pick grapes from throughout the appellation to create the finest wine possible. It’s the ultimate vinous puzzle, and the result continues to amaze and deliver value in spades. What always sets this wine apart is the nose. Just like the name says, we strive to create an aromatic profile that is bold and bountiful, with notes of charred Earth and spice, designed to provide a backdrop for whatever fruit profile the wine takes on. Layers of tobacco, leather, and flowers always seem to find their way into the mix, all backed by a smooth sweet vanilla finish that rounds out the palate - a fabulous wine at a fabulous price. The fire continues to roar vintage after vintage, and there are no signs of it being put out any time soon.
