Borsao Tres Picos 2010
Deep and sweet, Tres Picos Borsao is cherry red in colour with a hint of purple tones. In the nose, there is a boundless bouquet of mature red fruits with traces of flowers that are typical of the best Garnachas. In the mouth, it is rich and well-structured simultaneously conveying flavours of blackberries, strawberries and tones of leather, vanilla and plums. Perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin, Tres Picos Borsao leaves us with a long, silky and balanced finish.
Editorial Reviews for Borsao Tres Picos
A bit tight on the nose with a spicy, tarry blackberry and licorice nose with an ashy top note. Seamless on entry, then slowly fills the mouth with rich fruit, black and blue fruits, with well-integrated acids and nicely-managed tannins. There’s a little caramelized beefiness on the back end that leads into a rather fruity, long finish that hints at blackberry and black cherry with a beef jerky overtone. There’s a nice little mineral edge that emerges with time as well and a hint of blueberry. This is actually mighty tasty, but it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that it’s not 100% Garnacha.
This rich red is brimming with raspberry jam, chocolate, licorice and wild herb ... Drink now through 2015. -TM
Not bad- very high in alcohol (14.5%). It felt more like a dessert wine than a table wint to me. It reminded me of an overdone Argentinian Malbec.
This wine has a great nose of dark fruit with a gentle smokiness. The taste offers much of the same busting with the flavors of blackberry and black cherry. It has a light minerality with well balanced tanins. The finish is somewhat short in my opinion leaving a lingering flavor of light oak on the palate.
Third wine in the around the world wine tasting in February 2013. Flavor was strong and sweet, preferred others.

This rich red is brimming with raspberry jam, chocolate, licorice and wild herb flavors. Firm tannins are well-integrated and buoyed by orange peel acidity. A lively modern style.

Campo de Borja, SpainBorsao Tres Picos Garnacha is a perennial Best Buy hailed by many of the world's wine critics as an awesome value. We consider this wine one of the top gems of Spanish wine. The grapes come from vineyards that are between 35 and 40 years old. Located on uneven terrain at an altitude of 600 to 700 meters, these vineyards yield under four and a half tons of grapes per hectare, affording superb richness and concentration in the wine. This 2010 vintage of Borsao Tres Picos received scores of 92 from Robert Parker, 91 from Tanzer and 90 from Wine Spectator. Dr. Jay Miller for Wine Advocate wrote, "If I had to select just one Spanish wine that consistently over-delivers year after year, it would be Tres Picos." And Sommelier Journal just named it 2012 Wine of the Year! Need we say more? While supplies last!Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha is cherry red in color, deep and sweet, with medium body.

Dark ruby color with shades of purple. At the nose there is a rich aroma of ripe berries with hints of floral tones typical of the Garnacha, a unique variety. In the mouth, it is a full bodied rich wine with a taste of blackberries, strawberries and hints of leather, vanilla and plums. It is perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin that leads to a long, balanced and smooth finish.
One of my favorite offerings from the Bodegas Borsao is the 6,000-case cuvee of the 2010 Tres Picos. Made from 100% Garnacha aged in equal parts stainless steel and French oak, this is the Bodegas Borsao's interpretation of Chateauneuf du Pape. (But when's the last time you saw a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape priced at $17 - about 30 years ago?) Deep notes of roasted herbs, sweet black cherries and raspberries, peppers and spice soar from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Full-bodied, rich, ripe, silky textured, pure and long, this unbelievable value should drink well for 3-4 years. Glass-staining purple. Lively, faintly medicinal aromas of cherry, blueberry and licorice, plus hints of smoky herbs and flowers. Juicy and expansive, offering sweet, deeply pitched bitter cherry and dark berry flavors supported by a taut spine of acidity and fine-grained tannins. Finishes with powerful spicy thrust and suggestions of candied flowers a...
