Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Presumably a blend of old vine Garnacha, the 2009 Las Rocas Viñas Viejas over delivers and possess a perfumed, spice-driven bouquet of sweet cherry fruit, dusty earth, cedar, and dried herbs that flows to a medium to full-bodied, silky, and elegant palate. Balanced, clean, and with integrated acidity.

    ruby red to brown with visible white rim strong alcohol on nose with cedar or some wood after letting it settle, wood chips come through...hard to discipher fruits or florals full red fruit (berries) very soft tannins balance each other lovely finish- not complex but the high note settles gently a good weeknight red with lasagna

    Purple colored, it delivers a smoky, spicy, black cherry perfume leading to a soft, easy-going, savory wine meant for drinking over the next 4 years. as usual, it is an excellent value (88) - Jay Miller

    I enjoyed this wine. Outstanding value. Fruit taste. Raspberry and Strawberry. Very smooth. Not a very long finish but enjoyable the whole way.
