Our flagship Cabernet, Synthesis is blended to showcase the nuances of the Napa Valley floor counterbalanced by the structure and tertiary notes of the mountains. Always quintessential Napa, it truly depicts the breadth of the appellation and distinctness of the vintage.
Oak Knoll, Rutherford, Mount Veeder, Diamond Mountain District, Stags Leap District, Howell Mountain

98.5% Cabernet, 1.5% Merlot
The culmination of factors from another drought year in California surprised us with a beautiful vintage. An unseasonably dry and mild winter, which led to an early spring, forced the vines into bud break during peak frost season. A relatively warm, but even summer, resulted in early harvest dates, with lower-than-average yields.
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 40% new French oak for 18 months.
Deep and polished with plum, fresh cherry and marionberry with touches of cassis and clove. Vibrant red fruits layered with dried sage and cedar. Full and steadfast, its bright acidity is balanced by well-integrated tannins, with a hint of cocoa and earth on the finish.
