    Winemaker's Notes:

    Spicy, rich cranberry bouquet. Dark cherry flavors are highlighted by excellent structure and depth all supported by elegant oak. Round and full in the mouth, with supple tannins and a fruit-filled finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    My favorite of this trio, and a big time sleeper, is the outstanding 2009 Las Rocas Garnacha Vinas Viejas, which comes from 60-100-year old vines planted at 2,500-3,500 feet elevations. Aged ten months in old French and American oak, it possesses 15.2% alcohol along with a 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.

    I bought this wine on sale just to try it and would not hesitate to order it again at full price. This wine is fantastic! I could smell it just walking the open bottle to the table. Very dark fruit intense with a background of campfire wood smoke makes it refined. Don't hesitate to buy this wine as a gift for a red wine lover. You won't be embarrassed.

    Really liked this wine - very smooth, mellow red. Bought 6 bottles, gave one to a friend. We both liked it so much we ordered a case within a couple of days. Excellent value for the price as we got it on special offer at $11.00 per bottle

    This wine has a unique finish, which, recollecting days of old, I would describe as cannabis and which I happen to find quite pleasing. I ordered a bottle, then a 6-pack, then a case. At the recent discounted price, I think it's a great value.

    One of my favorite Spanish wines. Being Garnacha (Grenache) based it has a fuller body and flavor than the Tempranio based wines. Good value.

    Beautiful accessible red fruit right off, like a purple strawberry. Hint of rose hips. Mouthfeel calls for more. Earthy spice

    Very harsh tanins. Best if left open for at least an hour.

    Initially, I was really fired up about this wine as it was part of a sampler package. I ordered a case and couldn't be more disappointed. I've had three bad corks and tonite I opened a bottle that is clearly oxidized. I'll never buy this again, totally disappointed!
