2011 Syncline Wine Cellars Subduction Red Columbia Valley
Producer: Syncline Wine Cellars
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Rhone Blend
Region: Columbia Valley
87 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2013
(39% mourvedre, 29% grenache, 14% syrah, 9% carignan, 7% counoise and 2% cinsault): Good bright medium red. Musky aromas of pie cherry, spices, sandalwood and black pepper, complicated by a candied grenache note and a whiff of leather. Firm and savory on the palate, but could use a bit more energy to the flavors of raspberry, spices, pepper, herbs and leather. Finishes with dusty tannins and modest verve. Incidentally, there will be no more Subduction White from Syncline.
