    Winemaker's Notes:

    Unlike some of its Borsao stablemates, this bottling isn't gushing with fruit in the nose, but it has something more: balance. Black cherries and blueberries coincide with gentle vanilla and toast, and mineral and rock elements finish the wine, along with a whisp of citrusy crispness. Drink now or in the next several years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another outstanding effort is the 2011 Tinto, a blend of 85% Grenache (called Garnacha in Spain) and 15% Tempranillo that is fermented and aged in stainless steel. Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world, this is an unbelievable wine. And don’t complain that you can’t find any, as there are 15,000 cases available, and any wine retailer worth his weight should be stockpiling this wine next to the cash register. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, loamy soil and flowers. This medium to full-bodied wine possesses remarkable depth, an expansive texture and wonderful freshness as well as purity. On taste alone, this beauty could easily sell for $30-50 a bottle. I don’t understand how anyone can make wines this good to sell at this price, but somehow importer Jorge Ordonez finds them.

    This wine was a nice surprise - loved the deep fruit in it and no sharpness - it was a really nice smooth wine.

    Wow. What a great value. Fruit driven wine with surprising richness and flavor and nice slightly peppery finish. Don't buy just 1 bottle at this price.

    A surprisingly nice bottle given the price. Its a bit fruit forward and doesn't have a long finish, but a great Tuesday bottle

    OK, smooth, I thought it had an that deep rich flavor... Don't think it finished as well as I was expecting.

    for the price? hard to beat. it's EXTRA hot though...the alcohol percent says 14, but it's easily 15, if not higher, so be careful! And because of this heat, it's mostly what you taste....someone said Kirsch Liqueur...which is a good descriptor.
