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

Yeasty on the nose with freshly baked bread tones over lightly tarry black cherry fruit. A bit sweet on entry with soft tannins and supporting acids lending this a touch of a rustic feel. The acid actually sticks out a bit too much, lending the slightly baked cherry and plum flavors an off-putting metallic edge. The finish is a bit hot, but this is still a decent glass of wine. 83pts

Harsh nose with medium body - spicy and just a little sweet. Pairs well with spicy (hot) foods.

Vivid purple. Candied dark berries, cherry and spices on the nose. Vaguely jammy, showing sweet dark berry and candied violet qualities with no rough edges. The spicy finish lingers with good energy and freshness. This is a ridiculously good value and is also available in 3- liter boxes at a suggested price of $18, which means $4.50 a bottle!

The 2010 Vina Borgia is 100% Garnacha fermented and aged in stainless steel. Notes of cinnamon, clove, violets, and black cherry lead to an easygoing, smooth-textured red that finishes with no hard edges. Drink this friendly offering over the next 3 years. This supple, juicy red delivers a burst of ripe, sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors, with light tannins and just enough acidity to keep it lively. Garnacha.

Ripe cherries and green peppercorns on the nose join pomegranates along with the sweet flesh and tart skins of red plums on the palate making for a juicy mouthful of truly Spanish Garnacha. A quaffable red with immediate appeal.

This Garnacha is another from the Borsao operations, and it’s clean with plenty of black fruit on the nose and palate. Juicy, tight, forward stuff with a dark and peppery finish. A little raw and pointy, so drink with salami, a burger or skirt steak.

Tasting Notes:

Full and ripe, even a bit overripe, this rich and exuberant wine offers lots of black fruits and some raisin notes with raspberries and mulberries competing with those raisins. The finish shows some fresh mint and firm tannins, adding to the sense of play.

The vineyards for this wine are located 1,200 feet in elevation on chalky, white limestone soil and sandy soils with some gravel. Vines are planted primarily using the vaso system. Allowing for six hours of maceration prior to pressing, the wine is fermented in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks.
