Syncline Cellars Subduction Red 2007

Friday, October 24, 2008

Syncline Cellars is located along the Columbia Gorge in Lyle, Washington. The winery was founded by James and Poppie Mantone and produces about 3,000 cases annually focusing on Rhône varietals. Syncline gets its name from a three hundred foot cliff near the winery known locally as the “Coyote Wall Syncline.”

An early vintage of Syncline’s Subduction Red was one of my first loves in Washington wine. The wine composition of the wine has changed a good bit since then, this wine continues to be a great wine for the money.
