A spicy diesel like nose, with a nice minerality and some well integrated oak complementing the dark fruit palate. (Had just a taste at a tasting)
Black raspberry, spice and mineral overtones on the nose. There is a beautiful purity of flavor on this light to full bodied offering. Remarkably complex for this price range a raspberry flavoring slides across the palate to a lingering, tobacco laced finish. Good quality to price ratio on this one. 90+.
complex wine, very smooth and a touch viscous, perhaps at the tail end of its best drinking period. i found it pretty good considering i picked it up at the local supermarket. the nose is a bit leathery - i can understand why some people might not like it - but the blackberry and mineral flavors are quite nice. i found this wine a pleasant experience, but i would characterize it as "not for beginners."
External Reviews for Bodegas San Alejandro Garnacha Calatayud las Rocas
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.
