Fascinating wine at this price. Light wine with great berry fruit at the front quickly followed by dry, metallic and peppery tannins. Very few wines at this price are so complex, managing fruitiness with dryness, a start with a finish. In some ways Monte Oton calls to mind a bastard (in a good way) Pinot Noir with the dryness of a thin Pinot and the berry mouth of a heavier one. The metallic twang after the first taste of fruit is one of the wine's most notable effects. I found this totally enjoyable.

Opaque ruby. Black raspberry and cracked pepper on the nose, plus a hint of rose. Tangy, focused red berry flavors show good energy and betray no rough edges. The spicy note repeats on the nicely persistent, juicy finish. This is an incredible value.

The 2008 Monte Oton is more expressive aromatically. Spicy and vibrant on the palate and with a bit more depth and structure, this crowd-pleaser should also drink well for at least another 3-4 years.

The 2009 Monte Oton, also 100% Garnacha, is a step up. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it is richer, denser, and more layered than the Vina Borgia. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. Bodegas Borsao has long been known for high quality value-priced wines and the current releases are no exception.

Hereandrsquo;s another good value red from Borsao. Itandrsquo;s about as potent and packed a wine as youandrsquo;ll find for $7, and while itandrsquo;s jumpy, young and aggressive, itandrsquo;s also full of jammy black fruit, sticky extraction and firm tannins. A classic mouthfiller with spunk, color and heft.

Plump and velvety, this fruity red offers plum, blackberry and tangerine flavors, accented with vanilla and licorice. Not muscular, but generous. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cases imported. -TM The 2009 Monte Oton, also 100% Garnacha, is a step up.
