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 Read More...
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!

ROBERT PARKER 92 POINTS - "The terrific 2012 Tres Picos is one of the finest inexpensive, Grenache-based wines made in the world. This full-bodied beauty Read More...
boasts a deep ruby color as well as loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of lavender and crushed rocks, sweet tannin, and a broad, savory mouthfeel. It, too, should be consumed over the next 3-4 years.

This has long been a popular source for value-priced wines. Founded in 1958 in the appellation of Campo de Borja, Borsao owns a whopping 3,706 acres of vineyards planted at elevations of 1,300 to 2,300 feet above sea level. The soils are primarily limestone-based and the area is highly reputed for old vine Grenache, but there is also Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah planted as well as a few white varietals. Bodegas Borsao’s flagship offering is Tres Picos. Made from 100% Grenache from yields of less than two tons of fruit per acre, these chalky vineyards are planted at a 2,000 foot plus altitude on the hillsides of the Moncayo Mountains. The harvest is all done by hand, and the wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel and French oak for ten months prior to bottling. If you have not yet discovered the great values of Bodegas Borsao, it’s about time you do."

with accents of licorice and smoke. Opulent, in the modern style. Drink now through 2018. 3,000 cases made."

Borsao's wines have been a corner stone of our Spanish section for years and years. Familiarity sometimes means we don't taste these wines as often as we should. It's true! Just grab Read More...
a glass of Borsao's $5.98 Vina Borgia Garnacha, it is probably the best wine for the money on the planet. The color is a rich dark purple. Warm spices enveloped in blackberry and blueberry. The richness and spice carries through on the palate as the darker fruit tones showing on the nose are brightened by notes of red cherry and pomegranate. The folks at Borsao own nearly 3 thousand acres in Campo de Borja, roughly three quarters of the appellation. This rocky zone in the foothills of the Pyrenees is one of the original homes of the Garnache grape. There is an old church on the property that has records of Garnache plantings that go back to the 900's...

We are not huge followers of Twitter but we saw this mildly profane Tweet from the World's most respected wine critic and we just had to pass it on: “Robert M Parker, Jr ?@RobertMParkerJr - 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."
