Food Pairings for Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Berola
Tangy not in a good way. Too light for food.
Aroma - black fruit, cherry, dust, nice fruit. Taste - Blackberry, dust, leather, cherry, good lengthy finish, some higher alcohols All in all an excellent wine at this price ($6.99 in MO) I have had previous vintages and this is a good introduction to Spanish wines, and to Grenacha as it exhibits some typical qualities of both, and the price is such, that it shouldn't scare off novices.
External Reviews for Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Berola
Nothing Evokes the joy of warm weather better than the luminescent color and vibrant flavors of Borsao Rose'. Abundant aromas of warm sun drenched strawberries fill your glass. Delicate sweet baking spices accentuate the fruity flavors.
The 2009 Berola is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Some oak enters the picture here, as this cuvee is aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for about 14 months. There are 1,400 cases of this serious red. While priced nearly twice as high as some of its siblings, this is a hefty, rich, impressive wine that will drink well for 7–8 years. Abundant notes of black currants, black cherries, licorice, flowers, vanillin and spice box are found in the aromas and flavors of this medium to full-bodied, silky, well-endowed wine. Unbelievable!
The Bodegas Borsao Berola is a 70/20/10 blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Cabernet in the 2009 vintage and has layered kirsh, blackberry, allspice, and vanillin aromatics with luscious structure and a lingering finish.
This red marries ripe fruit to a firm backbone, offering black cherry and blackberry flavors. A bit jammy and sweet, with vanilla and licorice notes, focused by firm tannins and citrusy acidity. Drink now through 2016.
