2013 Syncline Mourvedre

No formal notes, but drank this with some homemade veggie burgers. I enjoyed it but it's not Syncline's best Mourvedre effort.

Tasted double blind. Dark in color. Ripe dark fruits, pepper, jerky, lavender, herbs, minerals, and noticeable garrigue on the bouquet. Honed in on the garrigue and guessed Cotes de Roussillon because of the ripe, dark fruit. Was pleasantly surprised on the reveal. Medium plus acid, luxurious mouthfeel, stalwart finish.

Perfect summer porch wine aromas of river rock, tall grass, and a light spritz of lime. Nice acidity on contact with high-toned lime, transitioning into orchard blossoms and perhaps some orchard fruits, before closing with some tangy, lower-toned stewed lemon. Good complexity. Longish finish which helps belie its status as a summer sipper. Acidity and fruit linger, penetrating the front of my mouth in a pleasing way.

Definitely harder and fuller than the Austrian Gruners we tasted this with. A nice wine but lacking the finesse of the Austrians.

Fine. But I'm spoiled by all the magical new Mourvedre coming out of California right now, and this just doesn't have the complexity to be that compelling in the glass. Nice with dinner, tasty, but...

A big, bold, savage wine with weight and structure that doesn't seem to need finesse. Great earthy wild tones that you don't see in many other new world wines.

This is certainly living up to the previous few vintages from Syncline. Well integrated with focused flavors of cherry, strawberry, and baking spice. Their is a purity to this wine that makes it very enjoyable. Ready now or cellar.

2013 Syncline Mourvedre

Columbia Valley more

5/23/2015 - Ewhite30 Likes this wine: 90 points

Fresh and bright right out of the bottle. Very fruit forward, bright to dark red fruits frame the wine. Raspberries, black cherries and deep currant notes are all there. There's a balance too, especially on the palate, where the chalk and dust take over - the wine goes from bright to warm, but still biting and nicely acidic. This was great.

Unscrew & pour. Violet core with a scarlet rim. Always a classic CDR style blend. The nose shows plummy fruit & cracked pepper out of the gate. Full bodied & intense. Punching way above the $20 price tag. Ripe black & red berries balanced acid & tannins. Easy to drink & diverse with a variety of dishes. One of my favorite Subductions in recent memory.

Intense lemon with accents of orange peel and minerality, good fruit concentration helps offsets the high acidity. Needs a few years for the acid to integrate. Old world style and a standout in Washington.

Took about 45 minutes to really open up, but once it did what a beautifully delicate wine. Very floral nose, light body, wonderful red fruit and light brambly flowers on the palate, a great wine to sip in the park on a sunny spring afternoon!

Inky dark ruby ripe plum iodine nose. Overly jammy on the PnP, but starting to show some acid for balance after an hour with some light but chewy, stemmy tannins coming to the party. A bit bold and extracted for my palate, but the fruit forward folks will be pleased. Iodine and roast beef give the ripe blackberries some company. More acid and tannins would be welcome for my palate.

Agreed with Shorty01's asessment, tasted at the winery and thought the 2012 was delicious but in need of another year or two in the bottle before being fully integrated. Floral nose and brambly on the palate, will be incredible with a little more time. As a contrast, the 2013 has mellower tannin, is slightly more fruit forward and is drinking nicely now.

Focused blackberries, rose petals, and tea on the nose. Light texture with a enveloping and lingering presence. Most likely not one to hold onto.

2013 Syncline Grenache-Carignan

5/1/2015 - Bluecollar wrote: 90 points

Like the other 2013 Syncline wines, this vintage is producing slightly lighter versions that are fine textured and very clean. This wine is no different and although not a "light wine", it is more feminine in style than the last few years. Consistent with the wine makers notes, this has a meaty characteristic and wild red fruits with hints of herbs. Finish was a little short and not building.

Big, upfront aromatics of earth, blueberry, concord grapes, red liquorice, and sage. Silky medium texture finishes slightly tart with good acidity and lingering grapey/mild coffee flavors. Extra long finish and good concentration.

Such an enjoyable wine. A terrific balance of ripe red fruits, tannin, good acidity. Elegant yet somewhat rustic. Syncline has nailed this variety several years in a row.

Dark ruby with cherry and cedar nose. Dry tannins, fuller body and fruit, balanced toward the fruity side with nicely integrated tannins. Roast beef coming on strongly. Drinking very well now and should please those liking a bold red, not a fruit bomb, just a flavorful fruit driven wine with some acid and chewy tannins for complexity.

My 11th bottle of 18 and still enjoying. There's something at mid palate that puts this wine into purple paradise.....a distinct flavor of cedar that rounds out the berry and plum that precedes and follows. An excellent wine which is getting hard to find now.
