Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
Dark ruby color. Wonderfully rich aromas of berry pie, with spice. Deep, ripe fruit. Very dense and full bodied. 100% Old vine Garnacha (30-70 years old).
"From a mountainside, high elevation, old vine Grenache vineyard cropped at an amazing two tons of fruit per acre, the 2004 Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha was aged half in stainless steel and half in French oak for ten months. It is a lovely, expressive, deep ruby-tinged wine offering sweet aromas of kirsch liqueur, licorice, white pepper, and dusty, loamy characteristics. Full-bodied, supple textured, flashy, and flavorful, it is an unreal value that should be enjoyed over the next 12 months."
"From hillside vines between 40 and 50 years of age. Smoky and pungent on the nose, with ripe raspberry and cherry aromas. Lush, sweet and supple, the bright red fruit flavors offering excellent purity and concentration. This has impressive depth and finishes with lingering sweetness. Grenache lovers owe it to themselves to check out this amazing value." IWC
