We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The 2005 harvest was an excellent vintage for Napa
Valley producing moderate crop yields. The slow ripening season without heat spikes contributes to the positive qualities of the fruit: intense color, concentrated flavors and beautiful aromatics. The vintage of 2005 promises wines with elegance, balance and structure.
Martin Ray summarized our winemaking
method when he said: "We add nothing to our wines, nor do we take anything
from them. With infinite care, we leave them alone." Hand selected from individual barrel lots by winemaker Bryan Davison, Synthesis represents the finest expression of our favorite wines from the 2005 vintage. Our Synthesis is a fullbodied
Cabernet Sauvignon aged for thirty four months in French oak barrels.
Layers of concentrated and well-integrated flavors and aromas of black currant,
dark cherry and plum are accented by creamy vanilla overtones. This wine fills
your palate and finishes very long and rich.
Pair this Cabernet with your favorite cut
of steak, standing rib roast, or any hearty dish.

Made from 100% Cab, it's a blend of their best barrels from Diamond Mountain, Stags Leap and Sonoma Mountain. Just 103 cases were produced. "

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
