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.
Good deep, bright red. Crunchy berries, spices and pepper in the nose; more black fruit in character than the Viña Borgia. Juicy, spicy and nicely intense, with sweet, pliant black cherry, dark berry and pepper flavors and a good, firm finish.
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.
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 red-ruby color. Roasted black cherry, black raspberry and licorice on the very ripe nose. Sweet and supple, with sappy flavors of black cherry, raspberry and pepper. Denser and sweeter than the Vina Borgia. Finishes with a fairly serious tannic spine and good length. Incredible value.
Moderately saturated medium red. Fresh, spicy aromas of cherry and pepper; more precise and complex than the Viña Borgia. Sweet and lush but with very good vinosity for the price. Juicy, peppery red fruit flavors show good backbone and energy. Finishes with decent grip.
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.
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.
