2010 The Police - Synchronicity Red Wine Blend 750ml 3-Pack
Aromas of fresh rose petals and wild berries. Flavors of juicy strawberry, bright raspberry, with a lush lingering finish. a delicious, approachable, and very food friendly wine.
Quite literally, this wine represents and manifests the notion of “Synchronicity” as it was interpreted by The Police with their classic album and this wine’s namesake.
Simply put, “to count as synchronicity, the events should be unlikely to occur together by chance”.
While listening to the album, Mark noticed a clear theme of light and dark - or as the Rolling Stone Magazine reviewer wrote, “it is an album of shimmering surfaces and glacial shadows”. From a distance the music is pop-like, romantic and has many bright melodies. If you listen closely to the lyrics, you will notice dark, heavy, and sometimes sinister themes of obsession, jealousy, yearning and anxiety.
The term Synchronicity, Sting’s magnetic vocals and the theme of light and dark in the music were the main influences on Mark while making the wine. Synchronicity as a meaningful mix of seemingly unrelated events resulting in a significant sum lead Mark to a red wine blend of varieties not commonly seen together. The playful, seductive, and haunting union of Carignane, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Viognier make this wine a compelling and delicious study.
