Finca Sandoval Syrah Blend Manchuela Salia 2009
Made of 50% Syrah, 37% Garnacha and 13% Alicante Bouchet (similar to Grenache), this delicious blend was tasted and loved by our staff. Salia is a Spanish red which is suave and silky with red and purple fruit flavors, and complexities of red roses, spice and licorice. It has very good length and smooth, chewy tannins.
External Reviews for Finca Sandoval Syrah Blend Manchuela Salia
The unfiltered 2009 Salia is a blend of 49% Syrah, 30% Garnacha Tintorera and 21% Garnacha Tinta that was aged nearly a year in a combination of French and American oak. This outstanding, full-bodied, fleshy red offers up notes of kirsch, black cherries, black currants and licorice intermixed with loamy soil undertones. It is an impressive, ridiculously low priced beauty that should drink well for 3–4 years.
Bright violet color. Pungently aromatic, with powerful aromas of cassis, smoky minerals, cracked pepper, violet and olive. Deeply pitched dark berry flavors show a blend of power and vivacity and become sweeter with air. Spicy notes build on the finish, which is chewy, gently tannic and long. Definitely give this wine some air.
