2010 was a tough vintage in the Columbia Gorge, so the sources for this rare Washington Pinot appear to have changed. It shows the careful, balanced approach that characterizes all Syncline wines, with appealing elegance. You will find flavors of wild strawberry, sweet tomato, and a dusting of cocoa in the finish.
