"The 2001 Borsao, a blend of 80% Garnacha and 20% Tempranillo, possesses a medium ruby color as well as ripe black cherry, earth, and orange skin aromatics. There is plenty of texture and ripeness in the mouth, in addition to a Volnay-like finish. I would love to see this offering inserted as a ringer in a blind tasting of premier cru red Burgundies.
One of the world's greatest value-priced wineries, Agricola de Borja's offerings are made in stainless steel and bottled early to preserve their vivid fruit. The low-yielding, concentrated 2001 vintage has produced wines with more muscle, depth, and acidity than usual."
