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 »

  • Bodegas Alto Moncayo Garnacha Campo de Borja Aquilon 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Intense Opaque Purple Violet in the glass. Opens with a musky baked ripe red cherry with just a bit of raisin spice. Onward to milk and dark chocolate, plum, and cola. In the mouth - a mouthful. Minutes and minutes long lovely finish. Perfectly balanced Tannins and Acidity, and while it seems perfect now, seems like it will continue to age and a... Read More

  • Los Dos Muscat Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A touch herbal on the nose with light apricot notes. There's a bright candied pop on entry here that's quite floral and sugary, even though this is a dry wine. It's more perfumed and like sour candy than it is literally sweet. There's also some lemon notes to finish. 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
