Finca Sandoval Syrah Blend Manchuela 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

[92 pts Stephen Tanzer] Finca Sandoval is 76% Syrah 13% Mourvedre and 11% Bobal fermented with native yeasts followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel with lees stirring followed by aging from 11-13 months in French and American oak a mix of new and seasoned 225 and 300-liter barrels. Purple-colored the wine offers up an alluring nose of toasty oak mineral floral notes blueberry and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied ripe layered wine with superb integration of oak tannin and acidity. There is enough structure to support 3-5 years of evolution in the cellar.

The best vineyards have historically played a large role in the Spanish wine world: see, for instance, the centuries-old valuation of the top Jerez pagos. But, starting in the mid-19th century, the development of Spain's wines took a different tack when the so-called bodegas industriales appeared on the scene: big négociant-type firms with very large productions of name-brand wines made with grapes –often, bought-in– from different places. In 2000, a group of small producers of single-estate wines from Old and New Castile got together to defend the personality which defines the wines from the best growths and to promote this culture of individuality which was being reborn in Spain. They founded Grandes Pagos de Castilla (Great Growths of Castile). This not-for-profit association became Grandes Pagos de España in 2003, reponding to the requests of many colleagues in other parts of the country who wished to make the single-growth concept better known and to seek excellence through the direct relationship between wine and its place of origin.

I almost forgot what a good Syrah can be! This wine is spicy and peppery, medium bodied, and blended elegantly with varietals that lend subtle hints of fruit and tamper-down that over-the-top palate that some Syrah can have. Great wine.
