Borsao Blanco Selección -Bodegas Borsao 2009
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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
My Rating 87: Very lovely long complex nose. Body is tight with strong fruity flavors not very complex. A nice everyday wine
External Reviews for Borsao Blanco Selección -Bodegas Borsao
The 2008 Borsao is a blend of 80% Garnacha and 20% Tempranillo. Purple-colored with an expressive aromatic array of black cherry and blackberry, this well-balanced, lengthy effort is another terrific value from Bodegas Borsao.
Vivid purple color. Intensely floral scents of violet, rose, raspberry, blackberry and Asian spices. A step up in complexity from the Viña Borgia and Monte Oton, with an extra aromatic dimension and impressive, sweet berry character. The finish is bright, focused and way, way more persistent than a $9 wine should be.
(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.
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.
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.
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.
Inky ruby color. Powerful dark berry and plum aromas are complicated by cured meat and smoky minerals. Medium-bodied dark berry flavors are impressively concentrated, with supple tannins adding firmness. This is weightier than usual, and more tannic as well, finishing with lingering bitter chocolate and fresh cherry qualities. The complexity that this delivers at this price point is remarkable, as usual.
