Robert Parker likes this wine ninety points. TWC doesn't care for it but that, methinks, might be a matter of personal taste.
Garnacha is Grenache with a Spanish accent and is one the most widely planted grapes in Europe. The Las Rocas is from Calatayud, Spain and is heavily spicy on the nose as well as the palate with a clean, mellow finish that is mildly tannic. TWC's main objection is that there is simply too much spice. Absent that, the wine is decent enough.
There are 18,000 cases of the delightful 2007 Las Rocas Garnacha, a wine sourced from Calatayud vineyards ranging in age from 70 to 100 years. Dark ruby in color, it delivers alluring aromas of spice box, mineral, cherry, and black raspberry. Layered on the palate, it has superb depth, succulent flavors, and a pure, lengthy finish. It will provide pleasure over the next three years. The Las Rocas label has become synonymous with value in recent years.
