Syncline Pinot Noir Celilo Vineyard 2006

A nice, prototypic pinot nose. A little minerality to it. A very up front, please wine. Good cranberry aftertaste.



Syncline Syrah Columbia Valley 2006

Tart. Not much on the nose at present. Very closed.



Syncline Mourvedre 2006

Light smokiness. Bright, dark berries. Nicely balanced.

Grapefruit. Melon. An enjoyable summer wine. 41% Grenache; 25% Cinault; 21% Mourvedre; 13% Counoise.
