BODEGAS SAN ALEJANDRO it is a cooperative founded in 1962, formed nowadays by 350 associates and 1100 hectares with a total average production of 4.600.000 Kilos. It is located in Miedes, place of the province of Saragossa placed to 88 km from the capital, in the valley of the Perejiles, to 758 m. of altitude and with a population of 530 inhabitants. Belonging to the community of Calatayud from the re-conquest of Alfonso I until 1834.

Black fruits and chocolate in the aroma, really easy going body with strong blackberry notes and a fruit-forward finish.

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.

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.

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 **

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 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.

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.
