Wine Details


Las Rocas







Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) Full flavored spicy wine with a supple mineral texture and no hard edges. Medium to full bodied, fruit driven wine.

(2006 Vintage) "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 Advocate91 Points

    (2006 Vintage) Glass-staining ruby. Powerfully aromatic, sexy bouquet of black raspberry, Asian spices and smoky minerals. Plaint red and dark berry flavors are energized by juicy acidity and framed by supple tannins. Spicy notes build with air and carry through the long, silky finish. This is showing extremely well today. As usual, an amazing value.
