REVIEWS

Forest floor and pomegranate on the nose. Black cherry, fig, anise and a nice earthiness with a tannic backbone on the medium-bodied palate, all leading into a medium finish. An excellent everyday wine, will pair well with many dinner dishes. 92 Points - JZ Aug '18

Delicious Value-Driven Blend

There’s a message in every bottle of Synchronicity—one that practically screams “drink me NOW.” The name is, of course, in honor of The Police’s much-loved and final album and the allusion to meaningful connections without perceivable cause is no accident. While the exact cépage remains a mystery to all but the winemakers, this red includes Carignane, Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, Zin and Petite Sirah. If at first these varietals seem to be unusual co-conspirators, remember, in southern France the first four grapes are commonly planted together and vinified as one—with delicious results. And in California, “field blend” reds often include old-vine Zin and Petite Sirah—both of which display the rustic, spicy full-bodied nature of Provencal and Rhone reds.

Together these varietals culminate in a warm, hearty red that rocks fresh-crushed, jammy strawberry notes along with tangy hints of cranberry with floral aromatics thanks to that addition of Viognier. Drink this neutral-oak aged red with burgers, BBQ or any foods that can match this wine’s intense, sexy character.

·    The Mendocino Wine Co., parent brand of Wines that Rock, is the first winery in the U.S. to be 100% carbon neutral.

·    Wine Spectator rated the 2015 vintage 90 points in Mendocino. The multi-year drought leading up to the 2015 harvest resulted in reduced grape yields and lovely, balanced wine throughout the region.

·    Winemaker Mark Beaman has extensive experience with cool-climate varietals, having worked at Ste. Michelle Wine Estates and Villa Mt. Eden before joining the Wines that Rock team.

TASTING NOTES 

From the winemaker:

Aromas of fresh rose petals and wild berries. Flavors of juicy strawberry, bright raspberry, with a lush lingering finish. The Grenache and Viognier definitely lighten up the heavy hitters making this a delicious, approachable, and very food friendly wine.
