Professional Wine Reviews for Borsao Garnacha Tres Picos 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.

Product Rating  
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.
