Las Rocas Garnacha 2005

  • Area: Spain, Calatayud
  • Grape: Garnacha
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Rating: Black 89, Dilettante 89
Description: Totally un-oaked and velvety soft, this has attractive notes of cherries, damp earth, cardamom, candied ginger, raspberries and a nice pomegranate lift. Fruit forward with a dusky undertone. Decanting not required although it's better with a bit of air. We buy this one often and like it better than its more expensive old vine counterpart.

Price: $11
