This Borsao Zarihs comes from the Campo de Borja region of Spain. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. So, they've got serious wine game in the area... This savory Spanish red is made for meaty winter fare like weeknight pot roast with creamy mashed potatoes, carnitas tacos, or sweet, tangy and a little spicy pulled pork sandwiches. Don't hesitate to bring some mushrooms to the party; the delectable earthiness of the wine will welcome it with open arms. What sounds good to you winelovers?

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "Saturated violet. Dark berries, candied licorice, vanilla and a spicy black pepper accent on the oak-spiced nose. Supple and appealingly sweet, offering ripe blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors complicated by suggestions of vanilla and floral pastilles. Broad, fleshy and appealingly jammy, finishing very long and smooth, with a repeating vanilla note and slow-building tannins. Drinking window: 2022-2027." Feb 2021

Winery: "Appearance: opaque red-black. Crimson-purple rim. Aroma: powerful impression of blackberries, with a hint of wood smoke and sweet vanilla. The nose begins to open up and develops notes of dark chocolate. Palate: the initial impact is very full bodied, with a plush, soft structure. Flavours of dark berries dominate; wild blackberries and dried plums, with notes of espresso coffee.

Food pairing: Rice based dishes like paella, beef, pork, pasta, grilled vegetables."
