Red blend. Smooth and super concentrated. Was priced at $15.99. Deep plum color and pretty long finish. Decanting would rock this wine. Read more

Plenty of strawberry flavors on the nose and palate. Almost no tannins. Good acid gives it freshness and crispness.
I tried this at Wine Spectator Magazine's "Grand Tour -2009" in Chicago. This wine scored a whopping 92pts according to Wine Spectator Magazine. I have been told by several non-WS magazine folks, this rating should be in the neighborhood of 90. Anyway for $15 you can not go wrong and I have bought a couple since. I really like it. Its perfect for sitting on the deck and sharing with someone special. However, this wine is far from a keeper, or a special occasion wine, i.e. promotion, graduation, Apocalypse...whatever! :) This wine will impress someone who knows little to nothing about wine. This wine will dissapoint someone who seasoned and is critical of the rating system. Remember, it's just a bottle of wine. Enjoy it! BTW, you can find other wines from the same region in Spain that are similar in price and taste but better! I'm not trying to discourage this particular wine, just thinking out loud. -TF

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.
Very nice, smooth, pleasant aftertaste, good deep color, the taste is consistent from beginning to end.
Great stuff. I forgot to click on the wine glass rating thing.
External Reviews for Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Crianza
Fruchtige Aromen kombiniert mit Vanillearomen und Pflaumenfrucht, intensive Note, angenehmer Abgang und schöne Struktur.
Dark red. Smoky, spicy aromas of licorice-tinged cherry and rhubarb. Fresh and tangy, with nicely focused bitter cherry flavor accented by leather, cured meat and succulent herbs. Powerful, structured and long on the finish, with the concentration and focus of wines costing twice as much.
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.
There are exciting times in the industry and it's a pleasure to find a wine that not only tastes great but is affordable as well. Borsao's '96 Crianza is a dry, medium-bodied red from Spain that has a fruity bouquet and fresh cherry and spice flavors which marry well with Mediterranean cuisine. We liked it so much that we were compelled to buy in quantity so we could pass the savings on to you.
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.

Score: 90 Points (IWC) Tasting Notes: 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.
