Professional Wine Reviews for Marques De Grinon Syrah Dominio De Valdepusa 2006

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2006 Syrah (100%) spent 12-14 months in a mix of new and used French oak. This full-bodied offering exhibits a splendid bouquet of pain grille, mineral, game, spice box, incense, lavender, and blueberry. Smooth-textured, suave, and well-proportioned, this lengthy effort will have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2021, perhaps longer.

Additional Information on Marques De Grinon Syrah Dominio De Valdepusa 2006

Winery: Marques De Grinon

Varietal: Syrah

The Shiraz or Syrah grape varietal has seen a huge surge in popularity over the past few decades, partly due to the fact that more and more wineries around the world are beginning to plant and process this robust and flavorful grape for international audiences. This varietal has plenty going for it, and has the special ability of being able to clearly express positive features of its terroir in the bottle, alongside its characteristic flavors of dark berries, pepper and other spices. Shiraz/Syrah is also notably a highly versatile grape, and has been successfully used in several type of still red wine, as well as excellent sparkling and fortified wines. It is also regularly used as a blending grape, where it is prized for its ability to add a bold and strong, spicy punch to mellow, blended wines.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
