Always dig what Syncline does with their wines. Sappy blueberry and wild blackberry fruit followed by fresh loam and a good dose of pepper. Went very well with Lamb loin chops with a taziki sauce on the side.

(Syncline Wine Cellars Syrah McKinley Springs Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills) Locked up tightly right now, this is a moderately aromatic wine with pure dark fruit, light floral notes, and a light peppery top note. The fruit flavors here are incredibly pure with tart, vibrant acidity. Among the more exciting wines I have had this year and a wine that will lay down beautifully in the cellar for years to come. 100% Syrah. Fermented in concrete (80%) and open top fermenters. Aged 16 months in neutral French oak. 500 cases produced.
