Food Pairings for Borsao Vina Borgia Garnacha
This wine had great combinations right out of the gate, and got even better in time after breathing a bit. I am a fan. Berries and luscious fruit combined with leather and spice, with vanilla beans and a hint of toffee in the finish. Its a pretty wine, too.
My Rating 88 : This wine ha a powerful nose that some how is like perfume. My wife hates it I like it. Taste is balanced and very dry.the acid is on the strong side though. Interesting wine in the generic pool of all the same tastes! Recommend ! At Costco Orlando only $ 8.99!!!!!!
Very happy with this one at 8-9 dollars.
Delicious hint of berries and a nice finish. For the price, couldn't be happier!
Deep ruby color.Medium Body. On the nose red fruit driven(strawberry,raspberry) and Licorice, Palate confirms the nose, still fruit driven with a touch of black fruits (blueberry) Mid Palate brings forth a touch of spice.
Loved the hint of raspberry taste, excellent wine...great price
External Reviews for Borsao Vina Borgia Garnacha
Borsao Vina Borgia Garnacha 2008: Dieser Wein mit fantastischen Kirschwasser- und Erdbeernoten ist überraschend gut. Geschmacksreiche und klare Fruchtaromen mit mitterem Körper präsentieren sich der Nase. Der Uralt-Weinberg dieses Weines ist 400 Meter hoch gelegen und hat Kalksteinböden, gelagert und ausgebaut in Stahltanks. Vor der Vinificatio werden die Trauben noch einmal selektiert, um sie danach auf der Maische lange zu vergären. Anschließend wird der Wein in neuen Barriques gelagert und unfiltriert und ungeschönt in Weinflaschen abgefüllt.Weingut: BorsaoRegion: AragonienRebsorte: GarnachaInhalt: 0.75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12-16°CAuszeichnungenParker (Ausg. 166) 87 Pkte.

Inky purple. Very fresh, straightforward aromas of raspberry and blackberry, plus a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and tannin-free, with spicy red and dark berry flavors and gentle mineral lift. Easy to drink and a superb value, with good finishing bite.
Bright ruby. Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are deepened by notes of licorice, black tea and pungent herbs. Supple in texture, offering sweet red fruit flavors and showing no rough edges. A smoky note comes up with air, adding complexity to a nicely persistent, red berry-dominated finish. Extremely easy to drink, and offering excellent depth and clarity for the money.
The Evodia Garnacha is a shining star in the under $10 red category! A joint project among famed importer Eric Solomon, Jean Marc Lafage and Yolanda Diaz, designed to compete with the ever-popular Las Rocas. Great fruit and low acidity - the perfect red to serve with white fish. Lush black fruit and subtle spices - this wine practically melts in your mouth. Drink this all year round! Serve with a slight chill all summer long with fish and vegetable dishes, during the fall with turkey, during the winter with stews and in the spring with ham.
There are 20,000 cases of the 2009 Evodia, a 100% tank-aged Garnacha produced from old vines. Dark ruby-colored, it gives up an expressive nose of fragrant cherry blossom and cassis. Racy on the palate with plenty of juicy fruit, this is a surprisingly substantial, pleasure-bent effort that sells for a song. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Sexy, high-pitched aromas of strawberry preserves, black raspberry, minerals and pungent flowers. Concentrated but not at all heavy; sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors are lifted by a hint of violet. Very suave, especially at this price; finishes with silky tannins and excellent clarity. No jamminess here, which is pretty rare for inexpensive garnacha. These vines are reportedly planted at 850 to 1,100 meters altitude on slate and are more than 100 years old.
Altovinum is a new project - a joint partnership between Eric Solomon, Jean Marc Lafage and Yolanda Diaz. Sourcing fruit from high elevation vineyards in the village of Atea, their debut wine is EVODIA, from the Greek word for aroma.
