Wine Advocate

The deep crimson-colored 2007 Finca Sandoval is made up of 79% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and 8% Bobal made entirely from estate-grown fruit. The wine was aged for 11 months in new and seasoned French and American oak. It offers up a brooding bouquet of underbrush, mineral, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry. Packed and impeccably balanced, this savory, layered effort is surprisingly forward for its size. It can be approached now but will be better with 2-3 years of additional cellaring.

Score: 93. —Jay Miller, April 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

Earthy, deep and meaty, with rubber and heft to the nose, but also a ton of black fruit. Texturally, it's like velvet; and the palate is super ripe and lengthy, with flavors of blackberry, mocha, coffee and fine oak. A Syrah-led, full-bodied beauty that's subtle and not overpowering. Drinkable now but best in about 3-5 years.

Score: 92. —Michael Schachner, July 01, 2011.

Wine Spectator

Shows a pure beam of briary blackberry, black cherry and spice flavors, accented by hints of vanilla and dried herbs. The supple tannins frame the wine, while juicy acidity enlivens it. There's good concentration, in a more elegant package. Drink now through 2014.

Score: 90. —Alison Napjus, November 30, 2010.
