Syncline Syrah Horse Heaven Hills Mckinley Springs Vineyard 2009
The cracked black pepper aromas complement the black cherry fruitiness of this vintage and make it a great match for grilled Salmon and sautéed vegetables served over pasta. Aged for 10 months on a dark toasted French oak (35% new), which provides a wonderful deep and rich butterscotch characteristic. Notes from the producer's website.
Editorial Reviews for Syncline Syrah Horse Heaven Hills Mckinley Springs Vineyard
This smells of olive, briar, smoke and dried berry fruit, with a hint of prune. A little sweet on entry, but the acidity is well matched, lending this an easy, clear and bright feel. The flavors are red-fruited, a bit red currant and red cherry toned with some stemmy, briary accents in a rather simple presentation. Not a lot of wood, just pure, easy to drink Syrah fruit. This is actually pretty delicious. Just goes to show you that sometimes less really is more. Turns a bit sticky on the finish, but still nicely fruity without being footy. 86pts
Smoky, spicy, perfect for barbecue
A little olivey and fruity on the nose. A more simple and easy-to-enjoy Syrah that I can really get into.
excellent ... peppery and full. Great on it's own or with a big fat steak and fries....maybe even steak and eggs!!!
Three and a half glasses

Cline's Syrah is a wine of surprising complexity. The deep purple color explodes with fresh blueberry and black cherry jammy fruit spiced with cracked black pepper aromas.
