2003 Las Rocas Garnacha (San Alejandro, Calatayud, Spain)
90. Wow, what a hedonistic wine. No subtlety, just pure pleasure. Deep, soft ruby color. Strikingly intense nose of rich, ripe, raspberry/plum fruit. Full, lush texture in the mouth, with wonderful purity of fruit, and maybe a little minerally undercurrent. Full-bodied and slow to leave. Really nice. $9.99 at Whole Foods on Bellaire.
