About the Wine
Designed to be a balance of integration, Synthesis is a culmination of contrasting elements. The Synthesis team blends each wine to be a testament to its vintage, highlighting the nuances of its components while letting the appellation shine through. The Estate Pinot Noir flaunts the finest characteristics from premium Pinot Noir clones. Bringing the bright, full fruit and spice with the structure and high tone aromatics, it is a blend in which each clone supports one another. This balance results in a wine that is fervent and lush, an ideal expression of Russian River Pinot Noir.
From start to finish, 2018 was a very steady season, offering weather that was reminiscent of years prior to the drought. Higher than average yields and excellent quality brought about a fruitful harvest beginning in late August.
Aging: 12 Months in 30% New French Oak
Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir. Fresh plum and raspberry, with an undercurrent of pomegranate juice. Bing cherry and birch beer, with cola and a hint of graham cracker. Vibrant acidity and a mineral-driven edge with touches of graphite on the finish.
A creamy and fruity red with plum and cherry aromas, as well as citrus and a hint of cedar. Medium body. Lovely, soft, and caressing texture. Drink or hold. ~94 James Suckling
