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.

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.

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.

2010 Syncline Cuvée Elena

Columbia Valley Red Rhone Blend more

2/26/2015 - amenenberg wrote: 89 points

Dark, sappy red. Nose: moderately aromatic. Dark fruit compote of blackberries, cherries, loganberries and raspberries. Black pepper and and crushed stone. Tobacco leaf. High tone of rose water. Palate: medium viscosity, lightweight but satiny tannins. Fruit is tarter on the palate than nose with a good amount of fresh, bright orange. Berry flavors of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry. Touch of white and black pepper. Lavender, thyme and oregano. Minerality isn't as strong on the palate, but there is some pencil lead/graphite. And a bit of greenness, just a touch. Finish: the greenness is stronger on the finish, but not in a bad way. Acidity stays bright and carries the orange. It also ups the tartness of the raspberry. At the end comes in some tar. Overall a very solid if uninspiring wine. Given how good a GSM you can get from Southern Rhone for less than half the cost of this bottle, it's a terrible value.

Delicate and quite feminine this wine is very enjoyable. Cherry in color and very pure with an aromatic floral nose. Red currant, lavender, and strawberry flavors with hints of white pepper.
Lighter and more delicate than 2012.

Strawberry colored and floral on the nose. Well integrated flavors of pomegranate, cherry, and rhubarb, with hints of balsamic and cedar. Gentle tannin balanced out by crisp acidity with a medium length finish. Like many "Rhone blending varietals" from Washington they have some charicaristics of a fine pinot and are very food friendly

While we have visited Syncline a few times and enjoyed their wines at the source in the further reaches of the Columbia Valley (a far cry from the Napa in those dusty hills), this one came from just up the road at Binnys. Very solid wine with typical syrah character, smooth, velvety texture, dark ripe fruits, some earthy rich undertones.

Drank at Sturla's.
Simple and easy drinking, and quite light. Not a whole lot going on aromatically. This is simple to the point where no one could identify this as a rhone blend.
That said, it does represent good value at the price point. Unfortunately it was blown away by the other wines later in the evening.

Opened 30 minutes then poured. Opens with immediate blueberry compote and boysenberry flavors, transitioning with savory herbs and some hints of tobacco. Finish builds with just a touch of drying. Great food wine and continued to improve over the night.
Next time decant 30-60 minutes.
