Food Pairings for Marques de Grinon Dominio de Valdepusa Syrah
Rusty and full of dark fruit but a little too weak for my tastes.
Full bodied with a smooth finish.
Smooth blackberry flavours, medium tannins with some spice. Almost jammy . An enjoyable and drinkable wine. Medium to full bodied. Not sure it will keep, so drink & enjoy now. I paid £10 which is good value for this wine 13.5% alcohol
I love this wine. It has a very sophisticated taste. If you like the bold, robust flavor of Shiraz, you will love this one.
External Reviews for Marques de Grinon Dominio de Valdepusa Syrah
Marques de Grinon put Syrah on the map in Spain, and this exhibits a deep purple color, enticingly fruity and powerful with lush raspberries and black cherries, but equally well balanced.
Wine Tasting NotesDeep purple color with glistening cherry hues. Enticingly fruity and powerful aromas reminiscent of lush raspberries and ripe black cherries, delicately balanced by a subtle minerality and notes of wild peppermint. It is a beautifully full-bodied and fresh wine that reveals a silky structure leading to a textured and long lasting finish. 65% Syrah, 35% Graciano.
Dark red. Vanilla-accented cherry and cassis on the nose, with exotic incense and baking spice character. Medium-bodied dark fruit flavors are gently firmed by dusty tannins, which carry through a bright, clean, sweet finish. Nicely made, especially in light of the vintage. ** SOLD OUT **
Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby color with purple hues. Elegant nose with pepper, clove, smoky and rich dark berry aromas. Packed with layers of wild red fruits amidst mineral and spicy notes. Complex with plenty of ripe fruit backed up by soft tannins, with remarkable fruit finish and overall balance.
Dark purple. Aromatic, jammy blackberries, violets, cassis and freshly ground white pepper. Core of blackberry fruit, with accents of game, mineral and toast. Well-knit moderate tannins and relatively soft acidity. Displays tremendous fruit intensity and smooth velvety texture. It has good underlying acidity that provides vibrancy & a spectacularly rich and prolonged finish.
