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

Dark, heavy and a bit inky smelling with well-integrated, lightly coconutty oak. Fairly dense on entry with dark fruit and oak all twisted together. There’s a touch of caramel apple on the palate, along with black fruit and spice, even a touch of pepper, but it is a bit weighty. Smooth and well-balanced, it really freshens up nicely on the back end and through the modest finish. A bit of a one trick pony, which lacks some liveliness but is certainly very polished and easy to drink. 86pts

The 2010 Monte Oton is also 100% Garnacha sourced from higher elevation. Spice box, incense, mineral, and black cherry notes inform the nose of this round, supple, savory red. It is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 4 years. Smooth and supple, this red offers polished flavors of cherry, raspberry, chocolate and smoke. Theres a good balance of modest tannins and acidity. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported. -TM ** SOLD OUT **

The wine shows bright and full Garnacha notes of ripe black fruits, as well as raisins, blueberries, and plums, and it's even showing some overripeness. The mouth and finish are warm and relatively gentle. Drink now or in the next several years.
