Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

100% Garnacha

Deep and sweet, Tres Picos Borsao is cherry red in color with a hint of purple tones. In the nose, there is a boundless bouquet of mature red fruits with traces of flowers that are typical of the best Garnachas. In the mouth, it is rich and well-structured, simultaneously conveying flavors of blackberries, strawberries and tones of leather, vanilla and plums. Perfectly combined with sweet and pleasant tannins, Tres Picos Borsao exhibits a long, silky and balanced finish.

"Vivid and concentrated, yet still focused and nimble, this red delivers plenty of black cherry and raspberry flavors, framed by toasty, smoky oak. The tannins and acidity are both gentle, but there's enough to keep this balanced and lively. Drink now through 2010."

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.
