This red has a deep ruby colour, with notes of warm earth, baking spice, dried flowers and jam on the nose. The palate has a vibrant core of raspberry fruit, warm alcohol and a good finish.
This is the second vintage for the ambitious project of importer Eric Solomon, who discovered these ancient high altitude Grenache vineyards (70-100 years old), and brand named his offerings Las Rocas. The 2003 Grenache has just been released, and it’s another winner. Moreover at $8 a bottle, it’s a steal. Aromas of sweet black cherries, raspberries, pepper, and loamy soil soar from the glass of this medium-bodied, surprisingly elegant, personality-filled red. Soft tannin and good depth suggest drinking over the next 1-3 years is warranted.
Personality and quality have always defined our winery, since its foundation in 1962. Nowadays, San Alejandro is run by a passionate, young and dynamic team, all totally mad about wine.
