Winemaker's Notes

Refined nose of red fruit with a hint of blueberry. Spicy with vibrant acidity. "Has a sense of both elegance and verve. Great food wine.

"Slightly more intense than the Vina Borgia (and priced $2 higher) is the 2005 Borsao, a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Tempranillo. This stainless steel-fermented, deep ruby-hued effort displays plenty of sweet black cherry, strawberry, and raspberry fruit, a hint of black currants, medium body, silky tannin, and wonderful ripeness. The word is "BUY!" Drink it over the next year." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

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.
