Finca Sandoval Syrah Blend Manchuela Cuvée Cecilia 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Diese betörende Cuvée von kühler Stilistik beeindruckt mit seinem kräftigen Charakter. Noten von Cassis, schwarzen Beeren, Tabak, getrocknete Feigen und etwas Würze harmonieren wunderbar mit dem verführerisch weichen und ungemein saftigen Empfinden am Gaumen. Unterlegt wird dieses Top-Cuvée von einem erfrischenden Säuregerüst und einer wunderbar eingebetteten Tanninstruktur. Ein grossartiger Tropfen, der Massstäbe setzt!

Finca Sandoval:
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.

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.

Did anyone ever get hit in the face with peach flavor? On my second sip, I was really surprised with peaches.

Inky ruby. A complex bouquet offers red berries, cherry, rose and baking spices. There's a lively character here that reminds me a bit of ripe pinot noir. Juicy and open-knit, with gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and good spine. Finishes with gentle tannins and very good clarity, repeating the spicy note.

The entry-level 2008 Salia is a blend of 50% Syrah, 38% Garnacha Tintorera, and 12% Garnacha Tinta that went through malolactic in barrel and was aged for 11 months in seasoned French and American oak prior to bottling without fining or filtration. Mineral, blueberry, black cherry, smoke, and floral notes form the nose of this dense, succulent, layered red. It has enough structure to evolve to 2–3 years but can be approached now. It is an outstanding value that over-delivers in a big way.

A spicy base of cedar and tobacco leaf is layered with subtle notes of damson plum, ripe black cherry and cassis in this supple red that's well-integrated and refined from start to the bresaola-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018.
