Berola Borsao 2011
External Reviews for Berola Borsao
This rich red delivers plum, blackberry and licorice flavors, with loamy, gamy and herbal notes that give it a slightly rustic character. It has modest tannins and gentle acidity. Garnacha, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.
The 2011 Berola is a 1,400-case blend of 70% Garnacha, 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in both French and American oak for 10 months, then given 14 additional months of bottle age. It boasts a deep ruby/plum/purple color, notes of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, licorice and pepper, a velvety texture, and an elegant yet substantial, medium-bodied personality displaying loads of fruit and glycerin as well as a heady finish. It, too, is an unreal value. Drink now–2017.
Bright purple. Ripe cassis and blackberry aromas, with complicating notes of tobacco, fresh herbs and tobacco. Lush and supple on the palate, with sweet black and blue flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes vibrant and focused, with supple tannins and a lingering note of bitter chocolate.
