Robert Parker, Jr.-The Wine Advocate: "The terrific 2012 Tres Picos is one of the finest inexpensive, Grenache-based wines made in the world. This full-bodied beauty boasts a deep ruby color as well as loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of lavender and crushed rocks, sweet tannin, and a broad, savory mouthfeel. It, too, should be consumed over the next 3-4 years.
This has long been a popular source for value-priced wines. Founded in 1958 in the appellation of Campo de Borja, Borsao owns a whopping 3,706 acres of vineyards planted at elevations of 1,300 to 2,300 feet above sea level. The soils are primarily limestone-based and the area is highly reputed for old vine Grenache, but there is also Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah planted as well as a few white varietals. Bodegas Borsao’s flagship offering is Tres Picos. Made from 100% Grenache from yields of less than two tons of fruit per acre, these chalky vineyards are planted at a 2,000 foot plus altitude on the hillsides of the Moncayo Mountains. The harvest is all done by hand, and the wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel and French oak for ten months prior to bottling. If you have not yet discovered the great values of Bodegas Borsao, it’s about time you do." ~ Robert Parker, Jr., Nov 2013
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(half fermented in French oak and half in stainless steel): Bright purple. Heady aromas of blueberry, cherry compote, white pepper and woodsmoke, plus an exotic cinnamon note. Fresh and seamless, offering vibrant blueberry and black raspberry flavors and suave floral notes. The spicy quality lingers seductively on the tenacious finish." Sept/Oct 2013
Winery Info: "Founded 1958 in the town of Borja which was called Bursao in the 4th century B.C., this winery demonstrates what can be done with the Garnacha grape. This grape has not been well appreciated by the Spanish press. Through a meticulous selection process both in the fields and again when the grapes enter the winery only the healthiest bunches are then chosen. Using the most modern winemaking techniques, the wines produced here are most characterized for their expression of fruit. They are the best examples of the region known as 'The Garnacha Land of Spain.'"
