BORSAO 2010 BEROLA

ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS - "The 2010 Berola is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in a combination of American and French oak for ten months. It then spends a year in bottle prior to being released. A sleeper of the vintage, it reveals a deep ruby/purple color along with aromas of blackberries, black cherries, licorice and lavender. Full-bodied, rich, nicely textured and impressively pure, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years."

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLARS 90 POINTS - "Bright purple. Powerful aromas of blueberry, blackberry and peppery spices. Displays vibrant flavors of smoky dark berries, white pepper and candied flowers, with a hint of candied rose in the background. Rich but graceful blend with a smoky, floral finish."

We’ve always enjoyed the wines of Bodegas Borsao, and they are undeniably great wine for the money across the board. Last year in one of our features we repeated a quote from Robert Parker where he was so excited about the quality of the Borsao line-up that he dropped an F-Bomb on Twitter, almost: “-buy Bodegas Borsao 2010s and 2011s-all from Campo de Borja-all under $10, which is F*@$%^@ unreal for such quality-red, white, and rose.” In fairness, Parker was Tweeting about the entry level wines from Borsao, not the higher tier. All the same, as we tasted this new “Berola,” we almost immediately thought about that long-ago Tweet, “DANG! That 2010 Borsao really is “F*@$%^@ unreal.” With Cabernet and Syrah in the blend, plus the additional 2 years of aging for “Beroloa,” Borsao is aiming for something higher and more age worthy. Imagine a Reserva Rioja as compared with an entry-level Tinto—there is more toastiness in the “Berola,” but also more ginger and spice, more orange-pekoe tea, and subtle hints of dried flowers. It’s quite a wine for $12.95!
