Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Campo de Borja Tres Picos 2005

Member Review by judgelog:

Gorgeous fruit aromas. Nicely concentrated flavors with some earthy spices rounding out the finish. Terrific for the price. Paired this with a seared tuna tataki that is crusted with fresh cracked pepper and sesame, with an intense sesame dressing, and it was a fantastic combination.

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

Puple tones. Red fruit. Strawberry, blackberry. Nice structure with good spice. Silkly finish with hints of leather and vanilla more than oak. Awesome wine to buy a case of. Parker =91

Bought and drank at Vino Paradiso with Trish and Mike. Reminded me of a Chateauneuf du Pape, with terroir being the first thing you think of when you smell and taste. A nice drinking grenache however, with ample fruit and smoothing tannins, and great QPR.

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 the characteristic of the wine very interesting through the finish.
