Winemaker Notes

High-toned tart cherry, on a core of under ripe raspberry and hibiscus tea. Herbaceous and taut, with touches of orange zest, mountain sage, and dried rose petals. Fleshy, with silky fine-grained tannins layered over vibrant acidity with hints of vanilla and fresh clove on the finish.

About Winery

The inception of Synthesis was in 1997, with the intention of making a flagship wine that was a defining representation for our love for the vintage. In its most essential form, it is a tribute to our dedication in the cellar, the pinnacle of the fruits of our labor. Acknowledging the quality of the fruit we have access to, and the breadth of terroir that shapes the wine, we set out to highlight each Synthesis vintage by blending our best barrels.

Designed to be a balance of integration, Synthesis is a culmination of contrasting elements. Inspired by the nuances and depth of its parts, we blend our top barrels each vintage to represent two iconic appellations. From the clonal diversity on our Estate Vineyard in the Russian River Valley, to the variance and complexity of fruit sourced from the mountains and valley floor in Napa, we feel each element integral in the evolution of the blend.  A harmonious balance, Synthesis, in essence, flaunts the finest characteristics from each of its diverse components.

SYNTHESIS WINERY

Varietal Composition

96% Cabernet, 2% Merlot, 1% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes

Earthy and structured with elderberry, dried cherries, and blackberry with touches of walnuts and resin. Plush red fruits and currants, layered with fines herbes and wet stone. Full and steadfast, its bright acidity is balanced by well-integrated tannins, with a hint of cocoa and caramel on the finish.

Winemaking Notes

"Hand-picked barrel lots of our favorite vineyards. Fermented in small 5 ton opentop fermenters for two weeks with pump overs for cap management. Aged in 40% new French oak for 18 months."

93 Pts, James Suckling

" Pretty aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, cassis and mint chocolate. Light hazelnut character. Medium-bodied with a creamy palate and a velvety tannin texture. Plush, yet fresh. So drinkable. Drink or hold. "
