Finca Sandoval 2003 Manchuela Spain
Finca Sandoval 2003 Manchuela
This cuvee of 80% Syrah, 9% Mourvedre, 7% Bobal, and 4% Tempranillo was bottled unfiltered having spent eleven months in French oak.
Dark colour; blackberries, pepper, licorice, cassis, and chocolate on the nose;
soft 'brittle' tannins..which will keep the wine top for 10 years..but so beautifully balanced that it can be drunk now; velvety mouthful with an enticing long finish
