Agricola de Borja Borsao Campo de Borja Tres Picos 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and sweet, Tres Picos Borsao is cherry red in colour with a hint of purple tones. In the nose, there is a boundless bouquet of mature red fruits with traces of flowers that are typical of the best Garnachas. In the mouth, it is rich and well-structured simultaneously conveying flavours of blackberries, strawberries and tones of leather, vanilla and plums. Perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin, Tres Picos Borsao leaves us with a long, silky and balanced finish.

Although the history of the city of Borja takes us back to the beginnings of the Paleolithic period, it wasn’t until the 4th century before Christ, in the heart of the Celtiberian period, when thanks to classical and numismatic written sources the name of this village came to light: Bursao. With the passing through Bursao of different civilizations like the Romans, Visigothic Hispania and the Muslims we have inherited architectural remains and above all, the natural inclination of its people towards agriculture and more particularly viniculture. Of equal importance was the implementation of artisanal techniques that today endure as living proof of the cultural richness of the former Bursao today known as Borja. During the I and II centuries, before our time, it used to mint bronze coins, ases and dividers as a symbol of its autonomy. On the obverse of the as we can see a celtiberian rider armed with a lance, riding on the writing of the name of the city in the native alphabet. The emblem adopted by the winery as a sign of identity. Read less

Smells like blackberry pie. A bit zinfandel like with brambly dark fruits and lots of oak induced baking spices. Smells sweet on the nose with lots of layered vanilla, spice and roasted fruit notes. Big and think on entry with dense, chewy brambly blackberry fruit. A lot of wine with a soft, approachable character. There is sufficient structure to carry the wine but the appeal is the rich, dark coffee cream tinged blackberry pie fruits. The finish lacks the harmony of the midpalate with acidity sticking out and coming completely unintegrated on the caustic finish. 84pts

This stuff is great. Very drinkable. The only problem is resisting the temptation to open that second bottle.

2008 vintage. Superb wine. A very interesting nose. Notes of ink and eucalyptus. Very earthy. Followed through on the palate. Vegetal and dried fruits with a wonderful lingering finish.

Red fruit, blueberry, flowers and spice on the nose, this wine has a sweet, sensuous, yet smokey taste on the swirl with a soft, lingering finish reminiscent of chili peppers and pencil lead. Beautifully balanced this Garnacha has layers of structure bolstered by firm, but not overbearing tannins. Approachable and seductive this offering provides simply outstanding value. 91.

Deep inky plummy red with a very young look, nose a balance of oak, alcohol and plummy fruit with a hint of menthol, medium-plus body, sweet and smoky in the mouth with a medium-long finish, soft tannins. Excellent value with the weight and intensity associated with Aussies but with much more subtlety. $11.33 wholesale/$17 retail

Lovely nose -- dark fruits, tobacco, leather, smoke, vanilla, mocha. It has a smooth, thick, heavy-ish mouthfeel...very nice.

The 2007 Tres Picos Garnacha is a worthy successor to previous vintages of this always remarkable value. Sourced from low yielding vineyards on the slopes of Moncayo Mountain, the wine was aged half in stainless steel and half in French oak for 10 months. Purple-colored, it offers up sexy aromas of cedar, underbrush, mineral, and black cherry. This leads to a layered, intense, spicy, rich Garnacha with gobs of succulent fruit, excellent balance, and a plush finish. This may well be the finest Tres Picos to date. It is likely to improve in the bottle for 2-3 years but there is no reason to delay your gratification.Inky ruby. Highly complex bouquet of cherry, dark berry liqueur, iron, tobacco and dried flowers; reminded me a wine from Graves. Tangy cherry and cassis flavors are on the primal side initially but soften and gain sweetness with air. Fine tannins add grip to the long, spicy finish, which repeats the iron note. This is very promising.

One of the most coveted value wines year after year. The 2005 was on Spectator\'s top 100 wines of 2006.

Borsao Tres Picos 2007: Für eine Garnacha-Rebe sieht man hier eine intensive, dunkle, kirschrote Robe. Das Bukett zeigt intensive Noten von roten Beerenfrüchten und Schwarzkirsche mit floralen Nuancen. Am Gaumen erscheint der Wein sehr reichhaltig und schön strukturiert und erinnert dabei an Heidelbeeren, Kirschen und sogar Vanille. Er besticht durch sein angenehmes Tannin, und seinen ausgewogenen, lang anhaltenden Abgang.Weingut: BorsaoRegion: Campo de Borja, AragonienRebsorte: 100% GarnachaInhalt: 0.75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 %Säuregehalt:    5,5 g/LiterRestsüße:    2,5 g/LiterEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12 - 16°CFassreife: in Barriques gereiftBodegas Borsao ist ein 1958 gegründeter Zusammenschluss von ca. 400 Erzeugern, die in der Anbauregion Campo de Borja eine Fläche von fast 1500 ha bewirtschaften. Campo de Borja ist benannt nach dem historischen und gleichnamigen Städtchen Borja worden, es liegt süd-östlich der Anbauregionen Rioja und Navarra, ungefähr 60 km entfernt von der Stadt Zaragoza am Fluß Ebro. Der Name der Bodega leitet sich vom lateinischen Namen "Borsau" des Örtchens Borja ab, das im 4. Jahrhundert seine Blütezeit hatte und sich über eine Fläche von über 25 ha ausdehnte. Noch heute sind Spuren von Bauwerken aus sowohl römischen, hispanischen und muslimischen Epochen das prägende Erscheinungsbild von Borja. Auf einer Höhe von 420 Metern über dem Meeresspiegel liegend, verfügt das Anbaugebiet über ein ideales Klima mit heißen Tagen und kühlen Nächten, begünstigt durch das nahegelegene 2 300 Meter hohe Moancayo Gebirge. Ein Großteil der Weinberge wurde mit Garnacha bestockt, einige Hektar auch mit den Sorten Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mazuelo sowie etwas Syrah. Von der recht großen Gesamtproduktion der Genossenschaft wird eine vergleichsweise geringe Menge von 700 000 Flaschen produziert, denn nur die besten Weine erscheinen unter eigenem Etikett, der Rest wird im Fass verkauft. weitere Infos: www.bodegasborsao.com Rotwein > Spanien > Aragonien

Old-vine Garnacha shows brilliantly in this Tres Picos bottling. Red berries and cherries dance on the palate while earthy notes and balanced acidity keep things lively through the finish.
