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

A medium purple red color with an aromatic nose of ripe strawberries, blueberries, and a touch of vanilla and lavender. The palate is flavorful with tons of juicy red and blue fruit, and on the finish just a tiny lingering of fresh coffee grinds. Dry, medium to medium heavy bodied, with tart acidity, medium astringent tannins, and a long finish. This wine has a candy like fruitiness which I did not particularly like. Very different from past vintages I have had, it lacks the earthiness and minerality I have enjoyed in other years. 2/5

Deep in color,spicy depth to the nose leading to the wonders of the mysteriousness of taste. The spiciness comes through on the palate, pleasantly peppery. A slightly dry finish. Although we rated this the same as some other wines that we've tasted, the complexity of this wine was truly noted. If you are in the mood for a spicier wine this would be a decent inexpensive choice.

Beautiful and well made in every respect. This comes in a beautiful heavy, deep=punted bottles with a thick foil and well made cork. The wine is rich and smooth on the nose and tongue, with vanilla, cherry and caramelized onion notes. Lots of complexity here to explore again and again.

Saturated ruby-red. Blackberry and blueberry aromas are complicated by incense and dried flowers. Juicy dark berry flavors are liqueur-like in richness, with nervy minerality adding energy. Becomes fleshier and sweeter on the finish, which echoes the floral note. Pretty sexy stuff.

One of the most coveted value wines year after year. The 2005 was on Spectator\'s top 100 wines of 2006.

Old-vine Garnacha shows brilliantly in this Tres Picos bottling. Red berries and cherries dance on the palate while earthy notes and balanced acidity keep things lively through the finish.
