Borsao Garnacha 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

89 Points - Wine EnthusiastA delicious wine and very much the model for value in Spanish Garnacha. That this has 25per Tempranillo only seems to make it better; the nose is sweet but full and plummy.

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

2009 Evodia (Altovinum Evodia Garnacha Old Vines - Calatayud, central Spain, 100% garnacha ). A value wine at $8. Some nice peppery fruit with a pleasant combination of sweetness and tartness . Needs some air (88pts)

This wine really opened up for me about a day after I opened it. Bold raspberry and strawberry flavors played with pleasantly smooth (and mild) tannins on my tongue. I also detected something floral, like rose or violet. Well worth the money spent.

IWC 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: There are 20,000 cases of the 2009 Evodia, a 100% tank-aged Garnacha produced from old vines. Dark ruby-colored, it gives up an expressive nose of fragrant cherry blossom and cassis. Racy on the palate with plenty of juicy fruit, this is a surprisingly substantial, pleasure-bent effort that sells for a song. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. According to the International Wine Cellar: Sexy, high-pitched aromas of strawberry preserves, black raspberry, minerals and pungent flowers. Concentrated but not at all heavy; sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors are lifted by a hint of violet. Very suave, especially at this price; finishes with silky tannins and excellent clarity. No jamminess here, which is pretty rare for inexpensive garnacha. These vines are reportedly planted at 850 to 1,100 meters altitude on slate and are more than 100 years old.

Altovinum's 2010 Evodia is 100% Garnacha sourced from the highest elevation vineyards of Garnacha of any DO in Spain. It offers up a slightly exotic nose of earthy minerality, mocha, black cherry, and black raspberry. Savory, concentrated, and with a forward personality, this great value will deliver pleasure over the next 3-4 years.

Inky purple. Very fresh, straightforward aromas of raspberry and blackberry, plus a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and tannin-free, with spicy red and dark berry flavors and gentle mineral lift. Easy to drink and a superb value, with good finishing bite.

The Evodia Garnacha is a shining star in the under $10 red category! A joint project among famed importer Eric Solomon, Jean Marc Lafage and Yolanda Diaz, designed to compete with the ever-popular Las Rocas. Great fruit and low acidity - the perfect red to serve with white fish. Lush black fruit and subtle spices - this wine practically melts in your mouth. Drink this all year round! Serve with a slight chill all summer long with fish and vegetable dishes, during the fall with turkey, during the winter with stews and in the spring with ham.

Bright ruby. Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are deepened by notes of licorice, black tea and pungent herbs. Supple in texture, offering sweet red fruit flavors and showing no rough edges. A smoky note comes up with air, adding complexity to a nicely persistent, red berry-dominated finish. Extremely easy to drink, and offering excellent depth and clarity for the money.
