Bodegas San Alejandro Garnacha Calatayud las Rocas 2009
Black fruits and chocolate in the aroma, really easy going body with strong blackberry notes and a fruit-forward finish.
Christmas 2013, Binny's. First bottle from the cellar in 2015. Very good with a few spicy notes on the tongue. I know that means nothing to anybody, but suffice it to say it is worth your pocket change. Mary loved it, I had one sip and it was a quality one. She had it for two cocktail hours on 1/2 and 1/3/15.
drank The whole bottle can't remember the last time i drank the whole bottle it was that good
The nose of this wine is pleasant, not too strong, very simple. It's actually a bit near the weak side. The first sip I was anticipating a dryer and more powerful taste that simply wasn't there. I actually verbally acknowledged my surprise. It was almost disappointing, but really more of a surprise. After four or five sips the tannins hit my young and the wine transformed into that dry and spicy wine. A really drastic change that maybe was an indicator of needing aerating. In the end, the wine is good and worth having around for a nice change of typical taste. One thing I had to return to state is that the more you sip the spicier the wine gets. With sips spread apart it remains a light wine, but for one who regularly sips, this wine gets very spicy and dry. :)
Rich flavor with dry finish. Not jammy.
