Our flagship Cabernet, Synthesis is blended to showcase the nuances of the Napa Valley floor and counterbalanced by the structure and tertiary notes of the mountains. Always quintessential Napa, it truly depicts the breadth of the valley and distinctness of the vintage.
From the high elevations and volcanic soils of Diamond mountain, to the alluvial soils and warmer weather of Coombsville, Rutherford, and Stags Leap, this wine is the perfect marriage of the contrasting styles each vineyard offers. Ideal conditions in 2016 from beginning to end, offering ideal results throughout. Foggy and cool mornings with minimal heat spikes.
Hand-picked barrel lots of our favorite vineyards. Fermented in small 5 ton open-top fermenters for two weeks with pump-overs for cap management. Aged in 60% new French oak for 18 months.
Bold red and purple fruits. Kirsch, mulberry, elderberry with touches of elderflower. Graphite, cocoa dust, and allspice, with structured, supple tannins.
