My first garnacha. Needed a lot of air for it to open up, soft fruit followed by bold tannins and a looong spicey finish. Read more

Love this wine--it is clearly demonstrative of dried cherry, smoke, chocolate, and pepper. very bold and very smooth. Read more

Smoky and toasty oak tones initially dominate the nose. There’s some fruit here and a slate tone, but at this point everything is under the oak. A bit sweet on entry and very broad in the mouth. This has fine acidity and a nice bed of soft tannins that build on the palate, but feels a touch disjointed at present. Though it is rather smooth, maybe a bit too smooth. The fruit is rather dense and a bit heavy on the palate with a nice segue to more toasty oak-driven notes on the back end. The finish is clean, fresh and fairly spicy with a touch of heat and stickiness on the finale. 86pts

Love this wine, 100% garnacha. Red fruit and some oak on the nose, with plenty more and some spiciness on the finish. It's well- layered, and very drinkable.

This is a red wine, and tastes good. It stained my carpet. Bad dog. The stain came out. I used the Theo Minges Riesling to get the stain out. I'm hungry now.

This red shows expressive flavors of black cherry, raspberry and chocolate with accents of smoke and herbs. It's round, yet not heavy, with good balance and just enough tannin for grip. Drink now though 2006.

The 2001 Borsao Tres Picos, a 5,000-case offering, is Agricola de Borja's top cuvée (packaged in a heavy bottle). It is produced from 100% old vine, mountain-grown Garnacha (Grenache), from yields of less than two tons of fruit per acre. This is a muscular, high acid, medium to full-bodied offering with impressive extract and richness. Give it another 2-4 months to fully open, and drink it over the following 5-6 years. The wine possesses intense raspberry and cherry fruit. It is a remarkable value for $10!

Smoky and pungent on the nose, with ripe raspberry and cherry aromas. Lush, sweet and supple, the bright red fruit flavors offering excellent purity and concentration. This has impressive depth and finishes with lingering sweetness. Grenache lovers owe it to themselves to check out this amazing value.

Toasty vanilla frames cherry, blackberry and cocoa flavors in this fresh red, which has light tannins and a spicy finish. Quite sleek, showing plenty of personality. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cases imported. -TM Wine Spectator. A Grenache wine from Aragon in Spain. 2009 Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos (Garnacha) 750ml

Coffee and smoky flavors add complexity to the core of plum and raisin fruit in this muscular red, and pretty floral and spice flavors linger on the finish. It's a bit tannic now, but still expressive. Drink now through 2011.

The marvelous 2003 Borsao Tres Picos, made from a hillside vineyard of old vine Grenache, boasts a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of loamy soil scents intermixed with aromas of garrigue, kirsch liqueur, and plums. Medium-bodied with terrific fruit, excellent purity, and a long finish, it is a super value to enjoy over the next 2-3 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and sweet, Tres Picos Borsao is cherry red in color 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 flavors 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.
