International Wine CellarInky ruby. A complex bouquet offers red berries, cherry, rose and baking spices. There's a lively character here that reminds me a bit of ripe pinot noir. Juicy and open-knit, with gently sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and good spine. Finishes with gentle tannins and very good clarity, repeating the spicy note.

Wine SpectatorA spicy base of cedar and tobacco leaf is layered with subtle notes of damson plum, ripe black cherry and cassis in this supple red that's well-integrated and refined from start to the bresaola-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 250 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe entry-level 2008 Salia is a blend of 50% Syrah, 38% Garnacha Tintorera, and 12% Garnacha Tinta that went through malolactic in barrel and was aged for 11 months in seasoned French and American oak prior to bottling without fining or filtration. Mineral, blueberry, black cherry, smoke, and floral notes form the nose of this dense, succulent, layered red. It has enough structure to evolve to 2-3 years but can be approached now. It is an outstanding value that over-delivers in a big way.

Wine EnthusiastBulky, dark, saturated and leathery on the nose, and then a little salty and edgy in the mouth, with a streak of zingy acidity along with roasted, tangy, thick blackberry flavors. Really good for the price but not as expressive, ripe and flavorful as the 2007 Salia or the higher-end Finca Sandoval; drink now through 2014.
