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

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

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.
