Bodegas San Alejandro Garnacha Calatayud las Rocas 2002

Member Review by 97mjr:

Great when just looking for a simple glass of wine. Cheap, drinks easily even without food, and not bad 2 or 3 days after first opened. Licorious and pepper on the nose. Plum, licorious, pepper, vanilla with mild tannins. I typically like my reds slightly below room temp; but this wine drinks better at room temperature; chilling it even slighty makes it thin and blunts taste. I have drank ~1/2 case from various sources, and across different bottles I have noticed a greater variation in the quality (85-92) than I would expect. This is consistent with the suggestion by the importer that the wine went through various modification after RMP first scored it.

It is located in Miedes, place of the province of Saragossa placed to 88 km from the capital, in the valley of the Perejiles, to 758 m. of altitude and with a population of 530 inhabitants. Belonging to the community of Calatayud from the re-conquest of Alfonso I until 1834. At the centre of its urban neighbourhood rises the church of San Pedro Apóstol made in the mudejar style, which it lies next to the exceptional communal Tower in the gothic style and built using cut-stone masonry. At the beginning of the 17th century, the mudejar-style Convent of the Reverendas Concepcionistas Franciscanas was built, where the remainders of San Alejandro currently remain in honour of whom the main town festivities are held from the 12th to the 16th of May.

very nice easy-drinking spanish grenache that is pretty easy to find and generally under $12 (often closer to $10). an excellent value at this price point.
