Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha 2011


Alas, I lost my tasting notes for this wine, so I'll see what I can remember...

I have a love for Garnacha - it was the first wine I truly fell in love with - but this one was a little different. Most garnachas I've tasted had a bit more fruit than this one. The Las Rocas seemed to be more tannic and even a little bit astringent.

There wasn't much complexity to it yet, either, but then again it was still quite young.

All in all an okay table wine, but not the equal of a Kan Blau or Evodia, which are my favorite Spanish table wines.
