Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Selección Roble 2009
Score: N/A Tasting Notes: It is the flagship of the winery and our most international wine. It has a very clean look, with an intense cherry red colour and violet tones. In the nose, one can appreciate a deep aroma of mature fruit with floral tones. In the mouth, it is a wine with body and pleasant tannins in perfect harmony with its tartness that gives us a wine rich in red fruit hues with spicy tones typical of the high quality Garnacha. In addition, it has a retro-nasal aroma that brings back the olfactory sensations of its youth and a long, complex aftertaste.
My Rating 87: Very lovely long complex nose. Body is tight with strong fruity flavors not very complex. A nice everyday wine
External Reviews for Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Selección Roble
The 2001 Borsao, a blend of 80% Garnacha and 20% Tempranillo, possesses a medium ruby color as well as ripe black cherry, earth and orange skin aromatics. There is plenty of texture and ripeness in the mouth, in addition to a Volnay-like finish. I would love to see this offering inserted as a ringer in a blind tasting of premier cru red Burgundies.
Bright and fruity, this red shows youthful exuberance, with grapey flavors, crisp acidity and light tannins. It resembles a young Beaujolais in style and freshness. Drink now.
Clear dark ruby. Ripe raspberries and a grind of fragrant black pepper make for an appetizing aroma; the flavor follows through with a mouthful of ripe berry fruit. Sufficient acidity for balance, but its soft and fruity flavor profile makes it a crowd pleaser.
Ruby-red. Fresh red berries, pepper and a floral nuance on the nose. Racy and nicely focused, with tightly wound, brisk fruit complicated by a tangy mineral element. Firm, focused and juicy on the finish, with a complicating note of tobacco. Very impressive for the price.
The 2010 Borsao Tinto is composed of 85% Garnacha and 15% Tempranillo fermented and aged in stainless steel. Aromas of Asian spices, incense, violets, and assorted black fruits are surprisingly complex. Supple, concentrated, and lengthy on the palate, this excellent value will provide enjoyment over the next 4 years.
Bright ruby. Red berry and cherry aromas offer good clarity and energy. Supple in texture, with sweet raspberry flavor and gentle tannic grip. Darker fruits appear on the juicy finish. Very suave for the price.
Auge: kirschrot, Violettreflexe; Nase: in der Nase tiefes Aroma nach reifer Frucht mit blumigen Noten; Gaumen: feine Tannine, harmonisches Säureverhältnis mit roten Fruchtnuancen mit typischen Tönen der Garnachatraube
