2006 Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha
Average to sub-average wine from San Alejandro, Spain. I just haven't found a lot of inexpensive Spanish wine I love, so please send any recos. I grabbed this from Costco for $10 when I saw it had a 91 rating from the Wine Advocate. Further, Wine.com dropped the 2005 vintage at #59 on it's top 100 wines of 2007.
Las Rocas was fairly dry leaving a gummy flavor on the tongue with the finish. Peppery with heavy currant. Definitely have your toothbrush ready for when you are done with this one. I have to disagree with the pros and rank it at 4/10: steak marinade.
