Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Crianza 2006
It has a cherry red colour with touches of garnet and an elegant, deep ruby background. In the nose, we perceive its great intensity where fruity and varietal tones are combined perfectly with vanilla and smooth oak tannins. Intense in the mouth, fleshy and well-structured with an ample and pleasing aftertaste.
Red blend. Smooth and super concentrated. Was priced at $15.99. Deep plum color and pretty long finish. Decanting would rock this wine.
The blend creates a unique wine that is not dominated by any one of the grapes. For a hot wine (14.7%) it is still pretty soft.
Great stuff. I forgot to click on the wine glass rating thing.
Very nice, smooth, pleasant aftertaste, good deep color, the taste is consistent from beginning to end.

Dense and balanced, this polished red carries plum, blackberry, black pepper and tar flavors. Muscular tannins are well-integrated, and fresh acidity carries coffee, floral and mint notes through the finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Drink now through 2014.

A stunning value, the 2004 Borsao Crianza Seleccion (a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Tempranillo, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) was aged 10 months in French oak. It is a delicious, hedonistic fruit bomb offering soft tannins, medium to full body, and loads of sexy blackberry and cherry fruit as well as hints of earth and spice box. The elegance, flavor depth, and richness are amazing for this price point. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.
The 2006 Crianza Seleccion is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of cedar, spice box, black cherry, and black currant. Smooth-textured, savory, and ripe, it has excellent depth, concentration, and length. It will evolve for 2-3 years and be at its best from 2010 to 2016.
Ripe berry and cherry flavors are framed by intense sweet vanilla notes in this supple red. It's sweet and soft, but has a fruity appeal. Drink now.
Saturated ruby-red. Blackberry and blueberry aromas are complicated by incense and dried flowers. Juicy dark berry flavors are liqueur-like in richness, with nervy minerality adding energy. Becomes fleshier and sweeter on the finish, which echoes the floral note. Pretty sexy stuff.
