What We’re Drinking – Las Rocas Garnacha

Cherries, red licorice, and freshly-turned earth come out on the nose. Candied cherry erupts on the palate with red licorice close behind. The mid-palate, too, has deep earthiness. The overall impression is red fruit candy. Drink with pot roast. Recommended. 86 points. DBH
