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.

Bodegas Borsao:

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

My Rating 87: Very lovely long complex nose. Body is tight with strong fruity flavors not very complex. A nice everyday wine

A tank-fermented and aged blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Tempranillo. This luxurious, seamless, voluptuous red reveals an array of sweet, jammy red and black fruits, excellent purity, fine texture as well as concentration, multiple dimensions, and a finish normally found in wines costing $20ndash;$30 a bottle. However, its low acidity and precocious character suggest it is best drunk during the next 2ndash;3 years.

The essence of mint and orange peel add character to the youthful red fruit that defines the bouquet of this 100% Garnacha. Cherry, plum skin and red licorice flavors come in front of a zesty, sharp, lean finish. There's not much fat or waste to this wine; it's precise and racy, and eminently tasty. It's a fine starter Garnacha.

The 2009 Borsao Tinto is composed of 80% Garnacha and 20% Tempranillo fermented and aged in stainless steel. Also a deep purple-color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of spicy black cherry and blackberry fruit with a hint of violets in the background. Sweet, long, and layered, this lengthy effort is an excellent value for drinking over the next 3 years.

(100% garnacha from limestone-rich soil; all stainless steel) Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries, Asian spices and white pepper. Displays a lot of aromatic complexity for the money. Sweet, slightly jammy black raspberry and spice flavors become more peppery with air and show no rough edges. The sweet, focused finish repeats the spicy notes. This has to be one of the top red wine values in the market, and there are 10,000 cases of it for the U.S.

If there's actually any of this stuff on the shelf, grab it! We'd be hard put to think of a better wine for the minuscule price and the secret's definitely out. Ripe boysenberry and spice with an easy-going style, but not at the expense of detail and nuance. We've featured this wine at tastiness where it sat next to $30 Riojas and didn't even break a sweat. Enough said.

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.

A delicious wine and very much the model for value in Spanish Garnacha. That this has 25% Tempranillo only seems to make it better; the nose is sweet but full and plummy. The palate is pure, flavorful and sweet, with baked cherry, earthiness and a hint of chocolate. A wine to buy in quantity, i.e. by the case.
