Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 29 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and sweet, Tres Picos Borsao is cherry red in colour with a hint of purple tones. In the nose, there is a boundless bouquet of mature red fruits with traces of flowers that are typical of the best Garnachas. In the mouth, it is rich and well-structured simultaneously conveying flavours of blackberries, strawberries and tones of leather, vanilla and plums. Perfectly combined with a sweet and pleasant tannin, Tres Picos Borsao leaves us with a long, silky and balanced finish.

Although the history of the city of Borja takes us back to the beginnings of the Paleolithic period, it wasn’t until the 4th century before Christ, in the heart of the Celtiberian period, when thanks to classical and numismatic written sources the name of this village came to light: Bursao. With the passing through Bursao of different civilizations like the Romans, Visigothic Hispania and the Muslims we have inherited architectural remains and above all, the natural inclination of its people towards agriculture and more particularly viniculture. Of equal importance was the implementation of artisanal techniques that today endure as living proof of the cultural richness of the former Bursao today known as Borja. During the I and II centuries, before our time, it used to mint bronze coins, ases and dividers as a symbol of its autonomy. On the obverse of the as we can see a celtiberian rider armed with a lance, riding on the writing of the name of the city in the native alphabet. The emblem adopted by the winery as a sign of identity. Read less

(50% garnacha and 25% each of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon, raised in a 50/50 blend of French and American oak) Vivid red. Oak-spiced cherry and blackcurrant aromas show a strong note of vanilla. Rich and creamy, but the oak dominates the lush fruit, which struggles to come forward. Finishes sweet, broad and long, with lingering notes of vanilla and clove. Intriguing bramble and herbal accents add interest to the ripe, jammy berry fruit in this fresh, supple red. Vanilla and floral notes linger on the finish. Grenache, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases imported. -TM The 2007 Borsao Crianza Seleccion is made up of 50% Garnacha, 25% Tempranillo, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 10 months in French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it displays a perfume of red and black fruits, spice box, leather, and violets. In the mouth it leans toward elegance while also providing plenty of grip and concentration. This lengthy effort can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years.
