 Garnacha
Calatayud, Spain
Price: $12.99

Garnacha is the Spanish name for the Grenache grape. Garnacha is the second most planted grape in Spain. The most planted grape is Tempranillo.

Las Rocas Garnacha is garnet in color. At 14.8% abv, it’s very high in alcohol. The high alcohol content is evident on the nose. Once the scent of alcohol blows off, it yields cherries and raspberries. The palate is also initially hot but eventually, develops black cherries and blackberries. This wine is very drinkable and plays nicely with food.
