"The grapes for Las Rocas are sourced from high altitude 70- to 100-year-old Garnacha vineyards. The 2006 Las Rocas Garnacha is dark crimson-colored with an alluring nose of spice box, mineral, black cherry, and black raspberry. Smooth-textured, round, and with no hard edges, this tasty effort is designed for immediate gratification. This is one worth buying by the case."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
The most pleasant dinner companion. Will seek many return engagements.
...and a half! I couldn't understand the negative reviews; this wine is rich and complex. Loaded with stone fruit flavor (very plummy) and a strong finish. Fruity to the point of almost being sweet but note, it isn't. It's moderately dry with nicely balanced tannins. The finish lasts forever. It is great with food!
This is one of my absolute favorites! I love the fruity flavors. I especially love having something spicy with it to eat and then you can really taste the cherry - amazing!
