Food Pairings for Campo de Borja Borsao Garnacha
2011 vintage, highly recommended by Mr. Parker, although it is not under $10 like he said. Maybe the price shot up after his recommendation? Sweet fruit compote with soft tannins and dash of sourness. Not complex but very good right out of the bottle, notably worse the next day.
Drink Now-Another outstanding effort is the 2011 Tinto, a blend of 85% Grenache (called Garnacha in Spain) and 15% Tempranillo that is fermented and aged in stainless steel. Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world, this is an unbelievable wine. And don’t complain that you can’t find any, as there are 15,000 cases available, and any wine retailer worth his weight should be stockpiling this wine next to the cash register. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, loamy soil and flowers. This medium to full-bodied wine possesses remarkable depth, an expansive texture and wonderful freshness as well as purity. On taste alone, this beauty could easily sell for $30-50 a bottle. I suspect the case price might even be closer to $7 a bottle than its suggested retail price of $7.75! I don’t understand how anyone can make wines this good to sell at this price, but somehow importer Jorge Ordonez finds them. Score: 90. —Robert Parker, October 2012.
I thought this wine was pretty good for the price. I would buy it again. It's a good table wine.
Tried at Deep's house in Miami. Excellent. Medium body.
It is the flagship of the winery and our most international wine. It has a very clean look, with an intense cherry red colour and violet tones. In the nose, one can appreciate a deep aroma of mature fruit with floral tones. In the mouth, it is a wine with body and pleasant tannins in perfect harmony with its tartness that gives us a wine rich in red fruit hues with spicy tones typical of the high quality Garnacha. In addition, it has a retro-nasal aroma.
