Borsao Tres Picos Campo de Borja 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This dark-garnet wine shows the signature raspberry character of Garnacha/Grenache on the nose and palate, but it's relatively restrained, and gains interest from grace notes of cloves and cinnamon. Juicy raspberry fruit and spice are nicely balanced by firm structural acidity on the palate

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 Lot 18 selection. Deep opaque Ruby/Purple. Opens with Roasted Plum & Cherry, with oak, cola, and a bit of planting soil.Swirl it around and more jam, oak, and bits off leather. Medium tannins and acidity with a long finish of plum, oak, cherry, cola, and a bit of mocha. Quite balanced, easy drinking - outstanding and even better with food. Terrific price point.

Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin. ~ The Winery ~

this wine was recommended to me by the sommelier at a qfc as a great value purchase. i was not disappointed. this wine has very distinct barbecue hints, and that is not a bad thing at all. definitely pair with a steak or something off of the grill.

The 2011 Tres Picos offers gorgeous strawberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of powdery chalk, pepper and spice. Lusciously fruity and medium to full-bodied with heady glycerin and richness, it should drink nicely for 3–4 years.

Inky purple. Ripe black raspberry and cherry liqueur scents are brightened by zesty pepper and allspice nuances. Plush and sweet, with powerful cherry and red berry compote flavors given lift by juicy acidity. Gains flesh and depth on the impressively long, spicy finish, which is given shape by fine-grained tannins.

Inky ruby in color, this Garnacha is highly complex with bouquet of cherry, dark berry liqueur, iron, tobacco and dried flowers. Tangy cherry and cassis flavors are on the primal side initially but soften and gain sweetness with air. Fine tannins add grip to the long, spicy finish, which repeats the iron note. This is very promising.
