I found the white pepper overwhelming. However, I enjoyed the long, gentle finish.

Deep ruby. Inky cherry, blackberry, cassis, licorice and graphite on the nose; this is the bouquet of a $30 wine. Deep, concentrated dark fruit flavors show impressive sweetness, with complicating mineral and spice notes adding interest. The minerality on the finish provides support to the dense, sweet cherry and blackcurrant flavors. This is a ridiculous bargain.

90 Points - Wine Advocate"...gives up attractive aromas of kirsch, raspberries, pepper, and damp earth. This is followed by a broad, full-flavored wine with a supple texture and no hard edges..."

Deep ruby in color, this is beautifully redolent of flowers, licorice, and pure cherry fruit. Cherries show up on the palate as well, as this densely textured, delicately structured wine carries through to a lush finish.

The grapes for Las Rocas are sourced from high altitude 70- to 100-year-old Garnacha vineyards. The 2006 Las Rocas Garnacha is dark crimson-colored with an alluring nose of spice box, mineral, black cherry, and black raspberry. Smooth-textured, round, and with no hard edges, this tasty effort is designed for immediate gratification. This is one worth buying by the case.

The 2002 Garnacha is fashioned from 75-year old Grenache vines planted on pure slate. Sixty percent was aged in tank, and 40% in neutral wood foudres. There are 20,000 cases of this offering, which may be the greatest wine value I have ever tasted. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a gorgeous nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with melted licorice and white flowers, this deep, medium to full-bodied, fruit-driven, sumptuously-textured 2002 is loaded. It should drink well for 3-4 years, possibly longer.

This is the second vintage for the ambitious project of importer Eric Solomon, who discovered these ancient high altitude Grenache vineyards (70-100 years old), and brand named his offerings Las Rocas. The 2003 Grenache has just been released, and it's another winner. Moreover at $8 a bottle, it's a steal. Aromas of sweet black cherries, raspberries, pepper, and loamy soil soar from the glass of this medium-bodied, surprisingly elegant, personality-filled red. Soft tannin and good depth suggest drinking over the next 1-3 years is warranted.

Winemaker's Notes:

[91 pts Robert Parker] Las Rocas Vinas Viejas comes from high altitude low yielding 100+-year-old Grenache vines and is aged in French and American oak. More aromatic than its sibling it has a splendid perfume of spice box lavender kirsch and blueberry. It is also a bit richer and longer in the finish. While it may evolve for 1-2 years who could resist it now?
