Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Campo de Borja Monte Oton 2011
Der <strong>Monte Otón</strong> ist am Gaumen fruchtbetont und sehr ausgewogen. Leuchtende rubinrote Farbe mit violetten Schattierungen. Frische Himbeer- und Erdbeeraromen mit feinen, floralen Nuancen. Dieser sortenreine, spanische Wein aus der Region DO Campo de Borja zeigt eine gute Struktur, mit einem reichhaltigen, weichen Abgang. Ein typischer Wein der Garnacha Frucht.

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
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.
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.
Bright, juicy Grenache from the producers of Tres Picos. Lush, spicy fruit will complement any meat dish.
Tasted blind, we found good value in this Spanish Garnacha. Interesting aromas and flavors of peppermint, anise, geranium, wet grass, dark tea, and berry briar. Like a stroll in the forest. In the mood for something unique?
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.
