$33.95 $45.00

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 “Extremely perfumed with aromas and flavors of dark berries, cherries, ripe strawberries, flowers and fresh earth. Medium-bodied and refined with lovely depth and length. Drink now.” At this price it should be a staple in everyone's wine rack.

James Suckling

Dried strawberry with orange peel and hints of spices and sandalwood. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Succulent. Gorgeous. Drink or hold.
