Bodegas Borsao Garnacha
|Region||Spain, Campo de Borja|
The 2015 Garnacha, which comes in the bright, modern orange/red/copper label is their largest cuvée of 40,000 cases and, again, a naked expression of its blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Tempranillo. This sees no oak, and is all the better for it. Plenty of black cherries, black raspberries, dusty/loamy soil notes, a touch of underbrush, pepper and spice are all present in this ripe, medium-bodied, luscious and delicious wine that sells for an outrageously low price. Drink it over the next year.
Light smoky notes accent the ripe black cherry fruit and dark chocolate flavors in this smooth, dense red. Sweet-tart acidity keeps this lively. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made.
