    Winemaker's Notes:

    It has an ultra fragrant nose, filled with spicy aromas of freshly cracked black pepper and clove, dried figs, warm oak, and just a hint of black olives. And oh what a mouthful…dried cherries, cassis, and oak dominate the palate. Its got a pleasant bite to it, and notes of cinnamon and dark cocoa that sweep you away to its bone dry charred oak finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A delicious wine and very much the model for value in Spanish Garnacha. That this has 25% Tempranillo only seems to make it better; the nose is sweet but full and plummy. The palate is pure, flavorful and sweet, with baked cherry, earthiness and a hint of chocolate. A wine to buy in quantity, i.e. by the case.

    Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of red and dark berry preserves and violet, with a spicy quality gaining strength with air. Very fresh, juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors gain depth with aeration. Slightly jammy but offers a load of sweet fruit and finishes with good lift and clarity. It sounds like a broken record, but this is another remarkable value from Borsao. There are 15,000 cases of this wine earmarked for the U.S.
