In 1991, Marques de Griñon pioneered the first successful Syrah vines of Spain and has since demonstrated its world-class quality potential. Made entirely from this noble variety, the grapes are fermented separately by parcel in stainless steel followed by 14 months in second-passage French barriques.

Tasting Notes

Opaque purple in color, this wine displays complex, layered aromas of blackberries, cassis, freshly ground white pepper and violets with savory undertones. Equally rich on the palate, the fruit-forward flavors are beautifully accompanied by fine, silky tannins and smooth velvety body.

Food Pairing

Pair with baked salmon stuffed with spinach and feta cheese, beef empanadas or samosas, or stuffed pasta in gorgonzola cream sauce.
