A perennial favorite at Halter Ranch, Synthesis blends 76% Cabernet Sauvignon with 22% Petite Sirah and 2% Malbec for a wine that over-delivers in deliciosity. Both red and black fruits and cassis dominate the nose, followed by flavors of black cherry and plums.
Crushed berries and cinnamon stick make a ripe and rich mid palate that finishes nicely with cacao and firm tannins. This vintage brings fruit in from Stag's Leap, Rutherford, and Oakville to offer another great example of how winemaker Trevor Sheehan exceeds expectations and brings Napa cab to us under $40.
100% Syrah Fermented and brought up all in new 300-liter barrels, the 2015 G2 Vineyard is perfumed and aromatic, with lots of cherry, blackberry, cured meats, olive and pepper. It's elegant, silky and polished on the palate, with fine tannin. | 92-94 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com
