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

Winery: Marques De Grinon

Varietal: Syrah

Whilst there remains plenty of debate over which is the 'correct' name for the Shiraz/Syrah grape varietal, nobody is in any doubt about the influence and popularity this grape has had over recent decades. For centuries, this varietal has been used in single variety and blended wines in the regions of France it is most closely associated with, yet the 20th century saw it become one of the definitive grape varietals of New World red wines, where its big, robust character and spicy, berry-rich flavors proved to be a hit with international audiences. Today, Shiraz/Syrah is said to be the seventh most widely planted grape varietal in the world, and is used for a remarkably wide variety of quality red wines – including still, sparkling and fortified varieties.

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
