Las Rocas 2009 Garnacha (Spain)
Many years ago I learned about Las Rocas wines while visiting my favourite wine shop in Michigan (Champane's Wine Cellars in Warren), my contact Dave said it was an underpriced gem, and he was right. Now it seems this wine is coming to the general list of Ontario's LCBO - it's about time. This really is a gem of a wine with blackberry, casis, spice and red raspberry on the nose; the aromas follow through on the palate while adding licorice all-sorts and cedar to the finish. Smooth with lots of juicy fruit.
