"The deep pink-colored 2008 Las Rocas Rosado offers a fragrant bouquet of strawberry, cherry, and rhubarb leading to a medium-bodied, fleshy wine with tons of flavor, excellent depth, and a vibrant personality. It will be versatile with a wide range of cuisines and drink well over the next 12-18 months.
The Las Rocas label has become synonymous with value in recent years."

Las Rocas translates to "the rocks," and those rocks translate to extraordinary wines. Las Rocas Garnacha hails from Calatayud, in the southeastern corner of Spain's Aragon region, where the air is dry and the terrain is unforgiving. Against all odds, Garnacha vines thrive on the steep, rocky slopes here, creating some of the world's most sought-after wines. The Bodegas San Alejandro growers' cooperative cultivates grapes from hundreds of small vineyards in Calatayud – many with vines more than 80 years old – to create the rich, robust flavors of Las Rocas Garnacha.
