Las Rocas Garnacha Vinas Viejas 2009 750ml

Las Rocas Garnacha Vinas Viejas

90 Point Wine Advocate: My favorite of this trio, and a big time sleeper, is the outstanding 2009 Las Rocas Garnacha Vinas Viejas, which comes from 60-100-year old vines planted at 2,500-3,500 feet elevations. Aged ten months in old French and American oak, it possesses 15.2% alcohol along with a deep ruby/purple color and copious notes of plums, raspberries, black cherries, lavender and licorice, a full-bodied texture, and impressive purity, depth and freshness. This dry red represents super value for frugal consumers. It should last for several years.

Our 2009 Garnacha Viñas Viejas exhibits a deep ruby color, with a spicy, rich cranberry bouquet. This well-structured wine has dark cherry flavors and elegant hints of oak, with round, supple tannins and a fruit-filled finish. Winemaking for the 2009 Garnacha Viñas Viejas followed our Las Rocas philosophy of balancing all the elements in a well-made wine with as little interference as possible with the natural processes. Cold-soaking the grapes for two weeks before fermentation helped extract the deep, intense flavors of the old-vine grapes. Fermentation of the vineyard lots lasted ten days at moderate temperatures (75°F - 80°F). We allowed all of the developing wine to complete a secondary malolactic fermentation, which softened the mouthfeel and added depth and nuance to the layered flavors in the wine. We used a balance of French and American oak barrels to condition the wine for ten months before it was bottled.
