Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha Vinas Viejas Grenache 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas San Alejandro is a co-operative with 1200 hectares of vineyard in Calatayud, 87 km southwest of Zaragoz in Aragon. The vineyards and long growing season in this area attracted French consultant Jean-Michel Lafage and his team (of Ch St Roch) and they were so impressed by the quality of the fruit coming into this co-op from its 350 growers, that they decided to develop their own brand, Las Rocas. The quality of their Garnacha is particularly high here and accounts for over 50% of their production. This 100% Garnacha is deep ruby in colour with spicy blueberry perfumes on the nose giving way to a rich, supple palate with intense blueberry and blackberry fruit characters. The oak rounds out the fruit, and gives the wine a delicious vanilla and cinnamon edge.

Very peppery and dry, with a zippy finish. I taste a bit of leather ... maybe let this one sit a couple of years. Interesting and worthwhile.

Falls flat. Very one note. Super sweet without much depth, kinda like drinking a dark cherry Luden's Cough Drop liquified. Now, Luden's can be tasty so this isn't a flat-out pan.
