Finca Sandoval Syrah Blend Manchuela Salia 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Finca Sandoval is composed of 76% Syrah 13% Mourvedre and 11% Bobal. Purple in color it exhibits a fragrant nose of mineral underbrush lavender black cherry and blueberry. This is followed by a dense layered full-bodied wine with copious spice and black fruit notes emerging on the palate. Well balanced and with enough structure to evolve for several years it will drink well through 2021. Finca Sandoval is the estate of distinguished journalist bon vivant and NBA geek Victor de la Serna. The wines are fermented with native yeasts with ML in barrel followed by 11 to 13 months in French and American oak." 93 Points The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker)

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.
