Marques de Grinon El Rincón 2007

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 El Rincon is a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Garnacha from the Aldea del Fresno and El Rincon vineyards. It has an ebullient bouquet of macerated dark cherries, soy and creme de cassis that carry the oak extremely well. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannins. It is very refined and focused with a lilting, fresh finish of strawberry and red cherries. Drink now-2018.
Wine EnthusiastWith a dark purple hue and rubbery, horsy aromas of black fruit, leather, dried beef and coffee, this full-bodied blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Garnacha delivers plump, chewy flavors of dark plum and ripe blackberry. There's also a lot of animal, earth and leather to the rustic finish.
Wine SpectatorSmoky, charry notes mingle with coffee and modest plum flavors in this earthy red. The fleshy texture is supported by grippy tannins. Displays a savory allure, but remains rather rustic. Syrah and Garnacha. Drink now through 2015.
