Bodegas Borsao Grenache Campo de Borja Viña Borgia 2004

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Grenacha, Tempranillo, and Cabernet Sauvignon Ruby rich red color with medium intensity. Nose shows light wood, earth, red meat, hints of aged basalmic and some charcoal. Rich with high acidty that masks what appears to firm tannins. Explodes in the mouth with cherry, liquorice, earth, basalmic, and some cranberry. There is a herbal component that I can't quite put my finger on, though this is really a big wine. The alcohol shows a bit on the finish though not in a distracting way. Will wait and see what happens in the next hour or two.... [NR]

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

maybe giving it an extra half star because its helping to ease the pain of the RNC.... but nice oak on the nose....has a bit more heft in the mouth feel and reminded me of the dark berry lifesavers I used to be addicted to on the finish. great QPR

Grenache, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon Ruby red with strong tones of violet, this wine is deceiving. On the nose, incredibly strong aromas of red meat, pepper, charcoal, cherry and rose with firm tannins, medium acidity, as well as medium body. However, the palate shows pepper, raspberry and slate. Why do I find it deceiving? Well, because I anticipated the intense cherry aroma to show on the palate, whereas raspberry became dominant. Appealing wine but it most definitely needs to open up and breathe over a few hours.
