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

100% Garnacha (Grenache) with even more fullness and depth in the dark ruby-colored fruit and spice than the outstanding 2002 vintage, in both body and flavor.


External Review

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.

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.

There are 18,000 cases of the delightful 2007 Las Rocas Garnacha, a wine sourced from Calatayud vineyards ranging in age from 70 to 100 years. Dark ruby in color, it delivers alluring aromas of spice box, mineral, cherry, and black raspberry. Layered on the palate, it has superb depth, succulent flavors, and a pure, lengthy finish. It will provide pleasure over the next three years.

Deep ruby. Rich kirsch and blackberry aromas are complicated by mocha and licorice. Smoky dark berry aromas pack serious punch and are supported by suave tannins. Finishes clean, lively and persistent. As usual, this is a great bargain.

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?
