Dark slightly murky purple. Berry, but also alcoholic on the nose. Lots of fruit, blacberry, on the tip of the tongue. Not a heavyweight, that's for sure. I would say medium-bodied. Kind of bitter, viney on the back of the palate. US$10.99 at WIne Club.

A perfect wine for a meat dinner, made of garnacha grapes which are very unique to this area of the world. This wine is from the very small village Miedes y the region of Aragon in Spain. It is a D.O Calatayud. I am a lover of garnacha and Bodegas San Alejandro make some of the best wines, this one is one of their cheapest ones but a very nice strong berry flavour. If you like this one taste their Baltasar Gracián.

Intensives Kirschrot. In der Nase reife Frucht, feine Toastnoten, Kaffee. Wunderbare Fruchtkomponenten der Garnachatrauben. Am Gaumen füllig, fleischig, geschmackvolle, schön integrierte Tannine, körperreich. Ein langer, fruchtiger Abgang.

Shows an intense cherry red color with captivating aromas of vibrant black raspberry. Hints of spice box reflect a judicious touch of oak. This wine is all about depth and succulent layers of flavor. It is round and full in the mouth, with a fruit-filled finish.

In the meantime, 2008 was a somewhat challenging vintage and, as a result, 60% of the juice meant for the old-vine cuvee went into the 2008 Las Rocas Garnacha. Purple colored, it delivers a smoky, spicy, black cherry perfume leading to a soft, easy-going, savory wine meant for drinking over the next 4 years. As usual, it is an excellent value. ** SOLD OUT **

Tasting Notes:

A perennial favorite among wine writers for its value, the character of Las Rocas seems to be changing a bit with time; where once the fruit was aged mostly in used barrels and the stony dustiness of Calatayud was the hallmark, now new oak barrels offer vanilla and even dry toast notes. The wine is relatively ripe by the region’s classic standard, with rich cherry accompanied by raisins.

The wine shows an intense cherry red color with captivating aromas of vibrant black raspberry and spice box derived from a touch of oak. Exhibiting depth and succulent layers of flavor, the wine is round and full in the mouth. It is truly a wine that speaks for itself.
