This Aragonian region, rich in history, gets its name from one of the country’s richest clans, the Borjas, related to Italy’s Borgia family, who had religious supremacy and huge influence on Europe throughout the Renaissance. But nowadays it is lauded for its wine and is often referred to by locals as “El Imperio de la Garnacha” (The Empire of Garnacha) for producing Aragon’s best examples of the grape. 
 
The grape-growing area ranges from high altitudes in the slopes of the Sierra de Moncayo mountains to parts with lower slopes and plains. Grapes grown in the lower elevations in the Ebro River valley get quite a bit of hot sun, tend to ripen early and produce powerful and extracted wines, though some can be quite alcoholic. The higher the altitude, the more focused, complex and balanced the wine tends to be, thanks to the “cierzo” wind that cools temperatures down and ensures much lower alcohol levels in the grapes, which are allowed Read more »

  • Tres Picos Garnacha Iwc 91 2010

    Snoothrank:

    For me this was a very drinkable wine. Rich red color and light on tannins. Had some blackberry and raspberry notes. I didn't pick up the ashy notes others mentioned, but that could be because I was smoking a cigar with the wine. All in all I would drink this wine again. Read More

  • Borsao Garnacha Campo de Borja 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Licorice, violets, and plummy fruit come together on the nose with a touch of strawberry jam adding some detail. Theres plenty of acid here that doesnt feel natural in the mouth. This is tart and then round with jammy strawberry fruit and powdery tannins. Raw and rustic in the mouth, this tastes industrial and harsh. Extracted tannins grab the ... Read More

  • Hey edwilly - haven't seen you around for a while. I know you know this, ... places like Zaragoza - e.g. Campo de Borja and Catalayud, you can find pretty good examples. These days, Gigondas is what CdP used to be and that's what Hermitage used to be, so the Rhone, particularly the S. Rhone, is getting really expensive for what you get. I'm dr... Read More

  • Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Campo de Borja Tres Picos 2003

    Snoothrank:

    I totally do not understand how this can go with "lamb and apricot" dishes. I had a glass just now with some cabbage and bacon stew alongside a burger and even those were to sweet for it. Sweetness brings out the peppery astringent tastes to the wine. Not a good pairing at all. Read More
