Professional Wine Reviews for Finca Sandoval Cuvee Tns Red Blend 2005

Rated 93 by Stephen Tanzer
(for a magnum; same blend as for the 2004) Inky violet. Lively red berry and cassis on the nose, with a complex array of fresh floral and bright mineral qualities. Tightly wound at present, with concentrated, energetic dark fruit flavors, a youthfully tannic structure and a long, chewy finish. Shuts down with air but there's superb potential here.
Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The Cuvee TNS was bottled only in magnum. It is a blend of 66% Touriga Nacional and 34% Syrah bottled without filtration. Inky purple-colored, it exhibits an expressive perfume of mineral, spice box, red currants, black currants, and blueberry. Smooth textured and elegant, the wine is already showing some complexity. It conceals some silky tannin and should evolve for several years in the cellar. Drink this tasty wine through 2020.

Winery Finca Sandoval

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.
