Wine Advocate 90 points - "The 2009 Las Rocas is 100% Garnacha sourced from 80-year-old vines from the DO of Calatayud with 25% of the wine aged in wood. It is a forward, savory, ripe, succulent offering that should prove to be a crowd-pleaser. It is an outstanding value that will deliver enjoyment over the next 5 years. "

This old vineyard in Calatayud, Spain used to sell its entire production to a coop, but decided a few years ago to do a custom bottling for Eric Solomon, one of Polaner Selections' primary suppliers. The Calatayud D.O. is located in the most western part of the Spanish province of Zaragoza. The vineyards of San Alejandro cover a total of 1100 hectares in the villages of Miedes, Codos, Ruesca, Orera, Mara, Villalba de Perejiles, Belmonte de Gracián, Atea, and Sediles.
Wine maker notes
Deep ruby colored with a gorgeous nose. Attractive aromas of kirsch, raspberries, pepper and melted liquorice. Full flavored wine with a supple texture and no hard edges. Medium to full bodied, fruit driven sumptuously-textured and long aftertaste. Pair with various roast dishes, Spanish stew, mushrooms and grilled meats. Also, blue fish, rice, short- and medium-cured cheeses.

Producer
Founded in 1962 as a growers’ co-operative, Bodegas San Alejandro (BSA) is located in the tiny town of Miedes, about 55 miles north of Madrid in the province of Zaragoza. Today, over 350 local growers farm nearly 3,000 acres of vineyard in the Calatayud winegrowing region to supply the grapes we use for Las Rocas®. Led by Yolanda Diaz, Managing Director of Bodegas San Alejandro, our dynamic team of young, passionate winegrowers and winemakers is dedicated to creating wines that show superior quality and style. Our winemakers strive to intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process, remaining faithful to the notion that quality is born in the vineyards.
