    Region: Spain

    Varietal: Grenache

    Style: Earthy & Spicy

    Item no. 99663

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark ruby-colored, the nose delivers aromas of mineral, cherry, and earth notes. This is followed by a medium-bodied wine with excellent depth, ripeness and a lengthy finish.

    80% Garnacha, 20% Tempranillo

    Critical Acclaim:

    This firm red offers ripe black cherry and boysenberry fruit, backed by notes of smoke, mineral and herb. The tannins are well-integrated, and floral and smoke notes linger.

    Almost impossible to distinguish this nice and easy Garnacha from the winery's Monte Oton label (also rated 89). Open berry and jam aromas keep it together, while the saturated, sweet blackberry palate is living proof of Campo de Borja's sun and terroir. Ripe, deep and easy to enjoy.

    The 2008 Borsao is a blend of 80% Garnacha and 20% Tempranillo. Purple-colored with an expressive aromatic array of black cherry and blackberry, this well-balanced, lengthy effort is another terrific value from Bodegas Borsao.

    This wine was not our favorite right out of the bottle, but it opened up and became fuller and more robust on the second day. Not my first choice when I need something to serve straight out of the bottle, but I would recommend this wine if you have time to let it breath for at least a few hours.
