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.
Lovely velvet burgundy color - strong aromas of berries - heavy taste tones of blackberries - pleasant to drink, seemingly light to medium body
My local wine shop sells this for $5 a bottle. It's a steal.
Hard to go wrong with a Garnacha. They're very cheap and they've got all the boldness and fire one expects from a good Spanish wine. This one was no exception. Less sweet than a Rioja or Tempranillo. Has a bitterness and mineral quality to it. I can imagine that it really was grown in the desert at the foot of a mountain.
External Reviews for Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Campo de Borja Monte Oton
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.
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.
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 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.
This lean red offers cherry, herbal, mint and tobacco flavors in a supple texture over firm tannins. Nervy and intense, with a slightly green edge. Garnacha. The better of two bottles. Drink now.
