It has an ultra fragrant nose, filled with spicy aromas of freshly cracked black pepper and clove, dried figs, warm oak, and just a hint of black olives. And oh what a mouthful…dried cherries, cassis, and oak dominate the palate. Its got a pleasant bite to it, and notes of cinnamon and dark cocoa that sweep you away to its bone dry charred oak finish.
"A delicious wine and very much the model for value in Spanish Garnacha. That this has 25% Tempranillo only seems to make it better; the nose is sweet but full and plummy. The palate is pure, flavorful and sweet, with baked cherry, earthiness and a hint of chocolate. A wine to buy in quantity, i.e. by the case."
"Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of red and dark berry preserves and violet, with a spicy quality gaining strength with air. Very fresh, juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors gain depth with aeration. Slightly jammy but offers a load of sweet fruit and finishes with good lift and clarity. It sounds like a broken record, but this is another remarkable value from Borsao. There are 15,000 cases of this wine earmarked for the U.S."
