Wine Details







Wine Description

The 2010 Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha begins with a very strong aroma featuring lots of savory, ripe berry fruit (mainly raspberry, blueberry and blackberry) as well as licorice, dried herbs, spice and even a hint of chocolate. My first though on tasting this full-bodied wine was simply, "Yum!". You'll find loads of rich, concentrated, juicy, savory, berry fruit with nice overtones of smoked meat, pepper, oak and spice. Fine, sweet tannins and good acidity round out this tasty and ever so succulent wine.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.

    One of my favorite offerings from the Bodegas Borsao ... Made from 100% Garnacha aged in equal parts stainless steel and French oak, this is the Bodegas Borsao's interpretation of Chateauneuf du Pape. (But when's the last time you saw a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape priced at $17 - about 30 years ago?) Deep notes of roasted herbs, sweet black cherries and raspberries, peppers and spice soar from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Full-bodied, rich, ripe, silky textured, pure and long, this unbelievable value should drink well for 3-4 years. Score - 92. (Robert Parker Jr., erobertparker.com, Oct. 2012)
