The shortening of the days and extension of twilight here in Napa points to the switching from T shirts to sweaters, shorts to pants, and Sauvignon Blanc to Pinot. And have we got Pinot for you, 94 points of Russian River brilliance. We tasted this wine and had to get it into your hands. A veritable luxurious waterfall of velvet black cherry and sweet sassafras that comes in at under $35. These rich yet balanced Pinots from fog drenched valleys are perfect for evening sipping, BBQ pairing, Netflix binging goodness. Pick up your case for weekend of juicy raspberry relaxation.
Synthesis is the flagship Pinot Noir of this Russian River Valley based winery. This estate Pinot rocks! Grown on the famous Goldridge soil it offers a core of complex rich fruit and a spine of firm acidity. Suckling agrees “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.” At this price it should be a staple in everyone's wine rack.
