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.

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

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
