Full and fleshy, Syncline Wine Cellars, 2009 Subduction Red is young and ripe. A Rhone blend heavily steeped in my favorite Mourvedre, this wine spills over its cup size – uncontained and juicy. Dark plum and blackberry unties into a loose string leading to a spicy finish. Supple and seductive, this wine twirls its tassels with smoldering intensity. I love that it’s the real deal, bouncy and perky – nothing fake here. Hard, if not hardworking – it’s booby bobbling and fringy, yet smooth and silky; a sensual expression of a handful, no a mouthful, for every occasion.
