90 points "There may be no better value in the store right now! The 2002 Las Rocas Grenache got 91 points from Robert Parker and this review: "The 2002 Garnacha is fashioned from 75-year old Grenache vines planted on pure slate. Sixty percent was aged in tank, and 40% in neutral wood foudres. There are 20,000 cases of this offering, which may be the greatest wine value I have ever tasted. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a gorgeous nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with melted licorice and white flowers, this deep, medium to full-bodied, fruit-driven, sumptuously-textured 2002 is loaded. It should drink well for 3-4 years, possibly longer. One cannot bestow enough kudos on importer Eric Solomon for unearthing these treasures." (06/03) "
