Carignane, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Viognier (probably in that order, %’s unknown).
The term “Synchronicity” refers to a “meaningful mix of seemingly unrelated events resulting in a significant sum”, which was the inspiration for this red wine blend of grapes which aren’t commonly seen together.

Bright red fruit dominates, with a lightly spicy edge to keep it interesting. There’s also some juicy blueberry lurking in there, as well as rhubarb, clove, and a little tree bark. Nowhere near as sweet as most of the other red blends on the market at this price-point. Viognier (white grape) helps to soften the blow of the spicier red grapes, a technique which is used in the Rhone region of France quite a lot. Fairly straight-forward, easy drinking, and gulgable.



I wouldn’t have guessed this was 14.5% alcohol. I think it holds it rather well. Very food friendly, and you’ll have a hard time going wrong pairing this wine with red meat, pasta, pizza, burger, ribs, and hearty stews.
