Winemaker's Notes

Number 59 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"The unoaked 2005 Las Rocas Garnacha is sourced from low yielding vineyards ranging in age from 70-100 years. It gives up attractive aromas of kirsch, raspberries, pepper, and damp earth. This is followed by a broad, full-flavored wine with a supple texture and no hard edges. Drink this pleasure-packed wine over the next 2-3 years."
-Wine Advocate

One of our most popular value wines. This Garnacha is a special project of importer Eric Solomon, who discovered these ancient high altitude Grenache vineyards (70-100 years old), and brand named the wine Las Rocas.

Excellent wine for the price. Let it decant for at least an hour before serving.

Read these reviews and just sampled. Terrific, very close to Wine.com profile, not oak as listed. I'm enjoying this and will definitely go for a few more bottles to keep on hand. Excellent, well-balanced, budget wine for gatherings.
