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.

The 2009 Tres Picos is a worthy successor to the string of splendid vintages which have preceded it. Heady black cherry and blackberry aromas, Asian spices, incense, and mineral notes lead to a dense, layered, rich old-vine Garnacha that over-delivers in a big way. A tasting of every vintage of Tres Picos ever produced (back to 2001) at the Bodega in January 2011 indicates that 8-10 years of pleasurable drinking is a reasonable expectation. However, this is a wine that is ready to drink on release. (aged half in stainless steel and half in French barriques Glass-staining ruby. An explosive, flamboyantly perfumed bouquet exudes scents of blackberry, cherry cola, violet and cracked pepper, plus a hint of smokiness.

IWC 91 Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - Glass-staining ruby. An explosive, flamboyantly perfumed bouquet exudes scents of blackberry, cherry cola, violet and cracked pepper, plus a hint of smokiness. Deeply pitched flavors of dark fruits and candied flowers remind me of syrah, but red fruit notes emerge with air, confirming that this is garnacha, not syrah. Intense, focused and impressively persistent on the finish, which echoes the sweet red and dark fruit notes and leaves a subtle smoky quality. This serious wine should be even better in a couple of years. Tasting Notes - 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. Rated 90+

Bright ruby color. Sexy aromas of red berries, flowers and Asian spices remind me of a top-notch New World pinot noir. Silky and sweet, with deep raspberry and cherry preserve flavors, fine-grained tannins and good finishing lift and length. Impressively elegant and precise.

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.
