Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha Vinas Viejas Grenache 2009
93 points Peñín Guide: (garnacha). Colour: cherry, garnet rim. Nose: complex, elegant, ripe fruit, closed. Palate: full, complex, flavourful, fine bitter notes, mineral. (2012) 90 points and 'Best Buy,' Robert Parker: ...deep ruby/purple color and copious notes of plums, raspberries, black cherries, lavender and licorice, a full-bodied texture, and impressive purity, depth and freshness. This dry red represents super value for frugal consumers. It should last for several years. (Aug 2012)
All acid until it sat in my glass for an hour. Then just hot/warm. What a disappointment from what I tasted in the store.
Fantastic wine from North Central Spain (Catalayud). Rich nose of berries, cherries and plums with some leather. The flavors just explode in your mouth with very little tannins and a slight acidity. Long finish and very complex. Purchased at wine.com Dec 2013, enjoyed at Ann's during NFC Playoffs in Jan 2014. Will buy this again.
