Bodegas Borsao Grenache Blend Campo de Borja Selección Roble 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

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.
