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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
