This wine has a lovely deep ruby color in the glass, and a nose that is a wonderful blend of jammy fruit, black cherries, currant, anise and somewhat of a sour twang, suggesting that the sweet fruit might be well balanced by acidity. The taste is an explosion of fruit in your mouth, with rich ripe berries, yet the acidity of some sour cherry notes really balance the fruit mid-palate. The finish is quite smooth, yet it has a wonderful woodsy sort of taste on the finish, which again is a surprising counterbalance to the rich fruit.

Poured the first glass and let it breath for thirty minutes. Loads of ripe red fruit on the nose and on the palate. Good balance of acidity and a touch of soft oak on the finish. This wine is a real bargain.

This is one of those exceptional bottles. HEAVY... just heavy.. thick and yummy. I had the 2009 vintage. Let it decant for at lease 30mins... it will open up!!! I even set it the fridge over night... the 2nd half of the bottle was better than the 1st! I LOVE IT!

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.

Composed of primarily Grenache blended with Tempranillo and Syrah, the 2009 Las Rocas Red Wine Blend spent one year in both French and American oak. It reveals more acidity (no doubt from the Tempranillo), and less flesh and textural excitement than the Garnacha displays. Nevertheless, this is a very good wine offering plenty of red and black fruits intermixed with a floral component as well as a hint of minerality. This medium to full-bodied red should drink nicely for 2–3 years.

Expressive black cherry, cola and vanilla flavors mingle in this polished red. The light, firm tannins and orange peel acidity are balanced, giving way to a spicy finish. Drink now through 2015.

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.


External Review

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.
