Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2018

Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha 2018

100% Garnacha. Bodegas Borsao is located in the D.O. of Campo de Borja. Borsao originated as a winery in 1958 when the cooperative of Borja was founded. Campo de Borja D.O. is located in the Aragon region, nestled against the Pyrenées Mountains. Bodegas Borsao stretches over 2,260 hectares belonging to some 375 vine-growers. The hillsides of the Moncayo shelter the vineyards located between 350 and 800 meters of altitude, regulating cold, heat and moderating the effects of the North-west 'Cierzo', or wind. This region is historically and geographically conducive to growing Garnacha, which makes up 60% of the vineyards. Borsao Tres Picos is the flagship of the winery. The best Garnacha of the Campo de Borja area. It was the first "100% Garnacha" wine produced in Spain back in 2000. The grapes are hand-harvested and go through cold maceration in steel tanks. From there they are aged in new French oak barrels for 5 to 6 months. If you love a Spanish Garnacha with an oak-spice character, supple tannins, plenty of fruit, and a bit of heft to it then this is the wine for you.

Tasting Notes
"Bright violet. Oak-spiced dark berries, licorice and mocha on the nose; a smoky nuance emerges with air. Broad, sweet and well-concentrated, offering cherry-vanilla, cola and blackberry flavors that show no rough edges. Closes with repeating oak-spice character and strong tenacity and supple tannins lending grip. There's a lot of oak here but there's plenty of fruit as well." - Josh Raynolds
