Bright violet, aromas of red stone fruits, orange peel and spice, with flavor notes of dried plums, red berries and cellar floor primed with alcohol. Unbalanced, disappointing effort from a consistent value producer.

This has become one of my go to wines. After trying the excellent 2007 last year, the 2008 doesn't disappoint. It's the same vineyard that makes the excellent Tres Picos 100% grenache. This one is 70% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 10% Tempranillo. It's a young wine so a hair on the sweet side but it does eventually open up with nice raspberry undertones. Really good, especially at this price point.

Dark, opaque dark purple vail. Colored legs. Fruity nose, violets, bosc pear, rose leaf, back end of spice. Very well balanced, decent tannin. Fast finish. Paired with four different pizzas and held up wonderfully. 75% Grenache, 25% Tempranillo. Good bargin!

Very good wine, love this - dry and complex for a young pure Grenache with a metallic mineral twang - would never guess it had sold for $7kevin@lungwitzlaw.com at whole foods - learned about this at www.redwinebargains.com

I was very excited when I bought this wine because I read a great review - but sadly, this wine made me deathly ill after one glass!!! At first I assumed I accompanied it with a bad batch of beef but I just had another glass tonight (3 days later) and I'm sick again! I'm so sad! Do NOT buy this wine. I would hate for anyone to slave over a fabulous dinner to see it turn up again moments later in the loo as I have. I should have taken the hint with the wine being named after one of the most notorious women known to poison people!

Here's another good value red from Borsao. It's about as potent and packed a wine as you'll find for $7, and while it's jumpy, young and aggressive, it's also full of jammy black fruit, sticky extraction and firm tannins. A classic mouthfiller with spunk, color and heft.

Fresh bright red fruit balanced by fine structure and ample bouquet. 100% Grenache.

The 2008 Monte Oton is more expressive aromatically. Spicy and vibrant on the palate and with a bit more depth and structure, this crowd-pleaser should also drink well for at least another 3-4 years.

Bright, juicy Grenache from the producers of Tres Picos. Lush, spicy fruit will complement any meat dish.

This lean red offers cherry, herbal, mint and tobacco flavors in a supple texture over firm tannins. Nervy and intense, with a slightly green edge. Garnacha. The better of two bottles. Drink now.

On the spot and sweet, with black cherry and roundness on the nose. Plays above its price league via ripe plum and berry flavors, bounce, body and build. Whole, concentrated and shows good structure, depth and character. About as good as inexpensive Garnache gets.

Borsao Tinto Selección Joven 2008: Beim Borsao Tinto 2007 handelt es sich um einen Blend aus Grenache-, Cabernet Sauvignon- und Tempranillo-Trauben, die im Stahltank vergoren werden. Das Ergebnis ist ein tiefroter Wein mit intensiven Fruchtaromen von Himbeeren, Erdbeeren, Schwarzkirschen und ein wenig schwarzen Johannisbeeren. Am Gaumen zeigt er sich harmonisch mit seidenen Tanninen, er besitzt einen mittleren Körper und hervorragende Reife.Dieser vollmundige Rotwein eignet sich ideal als Begleiter zu Pizza und Pasta. Die Selección-Weine sind noch frucht-dichter und komplexer. Die vier Weine erinnern im Stil weniger an Genossenschaftsweine, als vielmehr an die so genannten "Garagen-Produzenten" mit ihrer limitierten Produktion.Die Vinifikationsverfahren sind kaum unterschiedlich. Die Trauben von uralten Weinbergen wurden sorgfältig selektioniert und anschließend lange auf der Maische vergoren um danach in neuen Barriques zu lagern.Anschließend werden sie unfiltriert und ungeschönt abgefüllt.Weingut: BorsaoRegion: AragonienRebsorte: 75% Grenache, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% TempranilloInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 3 bis 5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Fassreife: Ausbau in StahltanksEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12-16°C Rotwein > Spanien > Aragonien
