Food Pairings for Borsao Joven Seleccion Tinto Garganega Shiraz Tempranillo /Spain
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.
Medium-bodied Garnacha with red cherry tastes. Mild tannins and a hint of spice and vanilla. I paid $6.95 recently. A great value.
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 $email@example.com at whole foods - learned about this at www.redwinebargains.com
Youthful and exuberant.
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!
External Reviews for Borsao Joven Seleccion Tinto Garganega Shiraz Tempranillo /Spain
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.
Tasted blind, we found good value in this Spanish Garnacha. Interesting aromas and flavors of peppermint, anise, geranium, wet grass, dark tea, and berry briar. Like a stroll in the forest. In the mood for something unique?
Round and juicy, showing rich, ripe cherry and raspberry fruit, with sweet vanilla accents, light tannins and just enough acidity to keep it all lively. Drink now through 2014.
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.
The 2009 Monte Oton, also 100% Garnacha, is a step up. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it is richer, denser, and more layered than the Vina Borgia. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. Bodegas Borsao has long been known for high quality value-priced wines and the current releases are no exception.
Auge: kirschrot, Hauch von Granat, tiefes Rubinrot; Nase: intensiv, perfekte Kombination der Früchte und der Vielfältigkeit mit Vanille und weiche Tannine nach Eiche; Gaumen: intensiv, fleischig, gut strukturiert mit einem angenehmen Abgang
