Las Rocas de San Alejandro El Renegado Calatayud 2012 Red Wine, $10.99-$13.99, 86 points, was core black quickly grading ruby to pomegranate red toward the clear wine ring and leggy glass bowl.
Perfumed aromas of flowers, coffee, and black and red fruits with briny notes were excellent.
Medium-plus body with bright acidity displayed a somewhat confused flavor profile of blueberry, red raspberry, menthol, plum, licorice and many other distracting notes.
Finished long on the trailing palate, a bit stemmy, and an appropriate 14% alcohol.
Paired okay with our pepperoni pizza.
Varietals were Garnacha, Tempranillo, and Syrah.
