Winemaker's Notes:

Delight in a spectacle of plum-raspberry aromas, very spicy and with a fruity retro-nasal aroma. With all of the sharpness and brilliance of its cherry red tones, and then in the mouth, this wine has a smooth and balanced passage with the great intensity of the fruit provided by its youth. Its aftertaste is long and pleasing.

About Borsao:

Founded in 1958 in the town of Borja, called Borsao in the 4th century B.C., this winery represents what can be done with Garnacha, a grape that is not well appreciated by the Spanish press. Through meticulous selection, work in the fields and at reception time in the winery, modern winemaking produces this highly fruity wine. One of the best examples of the region known as "The Garnacha land of Spain", the lower part of the Ebro River.
