    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby colored with a gorgeous nose. Attractive aromas of kirsch, raspberries, pepper and melted liquorice. Full flavored wine with a supple texture and no hard edges. Medium to full bodied, fruit driven sumptuously-textured and long aftertaste.

    Pair with various roast dishes, Spanish stew, mushrooms and grilled meats. Also, blue fish, rice, short- and medium-cured cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    Silky and ripe with deep blackberry and cassis; spicy, long and rich with a good acid structure and a long 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.

    Crazy good wine for the money. Super ripe black and red berries with just a touch of savory spice with good smooth finish. Buy more than one.

    smooth with a good nose feel. Not too overwhelming on the taste. For the price it is worth another bottle.
