(From 2009 Vintage) Silky and ripe with deep blackberry and cassis; spicy, long and rich with a good acid structure and a long finish."
"The 2005 Las Rocas Vinyas Viejas comes from high altitude, low yielding, 100+-year-old Grenache vines and is aged in French and American oak. More aromatic than its sibling, it has a splendid perfume of spice box, lavender, kirsch, and blueberry. It is also a bit richer and longer in the finish. While it may evolve for 1-2 years, who could resist it now?" - Wine Advocate
