2009 - Sierra Salinas Puerto Salinas
"There are 5,000 cases of this remarkable value, another stunning example of the astonishing palate of Eric Solomon and his ability to ferret out exceptional wines at such ridiculously low prices that most consumers will never guess how good they are based on the price alone. Composed of 66% Monastrell, 19% Garnacha and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for one year in both new and 2-year-old French oak, it displays an inky/purple color along with notes of road tar, melted asphalt, blackberry liqueur, camphor, graphite and forest floor. The wine is complex, full-bodied, rich and intense with terrific purity and wonderful overall balance. It is one more example of a wine that completely over-delivers. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years." - (06/12) - 92 Pts Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
"Lush and exuberantly ripe, this wine develops in the glass, gaining notes of spice and fresher fruit. It's a tight web of tannins, completely filling the mouth with their energy and power. A wine to cellar for five years or more." (10/12) - 91 Pts Wine & Spirits
"This wine's name is derived from the valley where the winery and surrounding vineyard area is called Puerto, which in Spanish means a
"natural passage or corridor in between mountains."
"The farming practice is sustainable. The age of vines is 15-30 years. Aging is done for 12 months in new and second-filling French oak barrels
with medium toast and from different providers to create more complexity of aromas and flavors." - Importer
"The Castano family, continuing their crusade and advocacy for the Monastrell grape, developed this project in the D.O. Alicante in 2003. They acquired and revamped some old vineyards located in the foothills of the Sierra Salinas mountains - between the provinces of Murcia and Alicante - at about 650 meters above sea level The winery is a state of the art, three level gravity flow facility located right in the middle of the vineyards with an underground barrel aging room."
"The estate is 92 hectares of land where almond and olive trees share the land with the vineyards. At present, there are 52 hectares of old bush vines of Monastrell, the indigenous Mediterranean variety, planted around 1970. The rest is devoted to vineyards are planted with other varieties in irrigated trellis, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tintorera and Syrah." - Importer
2007 - Marques De Grinon Rincon
"The 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."
"Marques de Grinon is sourced from the heralded 50-hectare Dominio de Valdepusa estate that is said to have the same topsoil as Burgundy. Every top consultant seems to have consulted here since 1990, including Michel Rolland, Claude Bouguignon, Dr. Richard Smart and Emile Peynaud. However, it is Carlos Falco, the man who has been instrumental in modernizing the region's viticulture and introducing Bordeaux varieties, who is at the heart of the estate. I found the wines to be intermittently outstanding, though to be frank, I discerned negligible differences in quality between the entry-level wines and the expensive top cuvees." (10/12) - 91 Pts Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate
"A blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Garnacha, the 2007 El Rincon spent 10 months in French oak prior to bottling. It delivers a deep, rich array of cedar-laced blackberries, spice-box, mint, and serious minerality along with a full-bodied, rich, yet beautifully focused and defined mouth feel. Still youthful and fresh, with notable tannin still present on the finish, it can be enjoyed over the coming decade." (03/13) - 91 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
"This wine is produced from a blend of Syrah and Garnacha from the El Rincon estate vineyard in the Aldea del Freso region of the DO Vinos de Madrid. The family strives to capture the unique terroir in the bottle of each wine they make, and El Rincon is no exception. Here, the vines are grown in decomposed granite, which they believe lends an unmistakable elegance and precision to the final wine."
"El Rincon is deep ruby-red in color, and marked by expressive notes of ripe plums, violets, spice and a hint of caramel. On the palate, it shows outstanding balance and complexity with plenty of ripe fruit, backed up with firm but soft tannins. Pair this wine with roast pork tenderloin smothered in stewed apricots or lamb casseroles." -Importer
"Marques de Grinon wines are sourced from the prized Dominio de Valdepusa vineyard in Castilla-La Mancha. Valdepusa stands apart from the rest of the region, as its 1068-foot elevation is one of the highest in Spain, and its top layer of soil is similar to Burgundy's - it is almost pure limestone."
"Dominio de Valdepusa has been in the noble family of Carlos Falco Fernandez de Cordova, the Marquis of Grinon, since 1292. Referred to as the father of Spanish wine, Falco pioneered the modernization of vine growing and winemaking in Spain. Falco graduated from the University of California Davis with a degree in viticulture and oenology in 1964. He returned home and began making wine, all the while pushing the boundaries of winemaking as set by Francoist Spain. In 1974, he introduced the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties as well as drip irrigation and night harvesting." -Importer
