Professional Wine Reviews for Borsao Garnacha Tres Picos Grenache 2014

Rated 92 by Stephen Tanzer
(fermented in a combination of French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, then aged in French oak for ten months before bottling): Bright violet color. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red and dark berries, incense and candied flowers, with a smoky mineral overtone and a hint of Asian spices. Intense, deeply pitched raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola flavors stain the palate while displaying a distinctly vibrant quality. Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins coming in late to add shape and gentle grip. These bush vines date back to the early 1920s and yield less than two tons of fruit per acre.

Borsao Garnacha Tres Picos Grenache 2014 Customer Reviews

Product Rating  
02/26/17
Another wine that I have been following for years.

I tend to love Grenache, but the grape just keeps forgiving my bias. If you want a red wine without the heavy tannins of Cab and Syrah, and without the heavy fruit of Merlot or Zin...yup, you are in the Grenache 'zone'.

This is probably the most consistent grenache made that is available in this country. It feels like hubris to mention that it has been a top 100 wine more than once.

On the nose, great stewed fruit. Golden raisin, plum, and figs. I would love to say there is more, but the fruit is sooo dominant.

On the palate, the fruit is there plus a bit of chalkiness. It finishes a bit on the tannic side, but it is not a problem as it is a medium weight wine. I wears the tannin well, and the acidity counter-balances it just fine.

This is a wine that I stock by the case. When you do not have a specific wine for a dish, but you want a red, this is the one.

Winery Borsao

Varietal: Grenache

For many centuries now, vintners in the dry and arid regions of Europe have been growing the purple skinned fruits of the Grenache vines for use in a wide range of different wines. Their influence and popularity led to them being planted all over the New World in any region with the correct climatic conditions for them to thrive in, away from the damp or wet weather which causes this particular varietal to very easily rot. Grenache grapes are prized by many as a result of their spicy berry flavors, and the fact that they have a relatively high alcohol content in the bottle. This has led to them being often used as a blending grape, although single variety bottles are also common and make the most of their light body and interesting, rich flavors

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
