External Reviews for Bodegas San Alejandro las Rocas
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.
A new release from Las Rocas, the red blend is a soft, fruit-filled wine with low acidity and smooth tannins — the perfect bottle for beginning red drinkers! Big cherry notes dominate, with just a touch of pepper on the finish. Great with tacos or pizza.
The 2009 Las Rocas is 100% Garnacha sourced from 80-year-old vines from the DO of Calatayud with 25% of the wine aged in wood. It is a forward, savory, ripe, succulent offering that should prove to be a crowd-pleaser. It is an outstanding value that will deliver enjoyment over the next 5 years. This fleshy red offers an expressive mix of dried cherry, licorice, cola, clove and vanilla flavors. Features some density, gentle acidity and just enough tannins for grip. Drink now through 2016. 107,000 cases imported. -TM (15.2% alcohol): Bright violet color. Dark berry and cherry aromas and flavors show liqueur-like character. Warm, spicy and fleshy, with good finishing breadth and gentle tannins. Plenty of fruit here, and just enough spiciness to keep the slightly jammy fruit in check. ** SOLD OUT **
The bright red color of our 2009 Red Blend leads to ripe, jammy aromas and nuances of oak. These aromas extend to the palate, creating a bright, medium-bodied wine with a round, smooth finish.
The mix of almond, dried fruit and earth notes give a certain air of mystery to the aroma of this wine. The palate is taut, with a fine layer of tannins and firm acidity that padlocks the flavors for now. Give it time in a decanter to open and serve with charcuterie.
Friendly aromas of kirsch and black cherry form the opening. The palate feels plump and flush, with good density and overall balance. In the mouth, nothing is complicated; the wine tastes of pure berry and plum fruits with some chocolaty oak on the finish.
Kirschrot. Sehr fruchtige, kompottige Aromen. Am Gaumen wunderbare Frucht mit schönem, gehaltvollem, frischen Abgang.
