2005 Finca Sandoval

Posted on October 17, 2009

This wine marks the first of my Cinderella wine purchases. Most of the research I’ve done suggests this wine is still a few years from its peak, so I made sure to decant it for two hours before drinking.

The wine is mostly syrah, with mourvedre and bobal, as well. It’s wonderful, with strong elements of blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, and especially strong licorice and chewing tocacco. This wine is pretty awesome, and I’d expect it to age exquisitely…
