"(half  fermented  in  stainless  steel  and  the  other  half   in  French  oak,  followed  by  ten  months  of  aging  in  French  oak):    Vivid  purple.    Fresh  cherry,  blackberry   and  incense  on  the  highly  perfumed  nose.    Lush,  sweet  and  broad  on  the  palate,  offering  fleshy  blueberry   and  floral  pastille  flavors  that  turn  spicier  with  air.    Closes  on  a  sweet  note  of  spicy  oak,  with  supple   tannins,  very  good  tenacity  and  a  touch  of  fruitcake."

"The  2013  Tres  Picos  is  the  bodegas  top  cuve?e  of  100%  Grenache  from  older,  head-­?pruned   vines  planted  on  the  hillsides  of  the  Moncayo  Mountains.  Yields  were  less  than  two  tons  of   fruit  per  acre.  This  was  the  first  of  the  Grenaches  to  spend  some  time  in  a  combination  of   older  French  oak  barrels  (for  10  months)  as  well  as  stainless  steel.  There  are  6,000  cases  of   this  outstanding  wine.  Its  dense  ruby/purple-­?tinged  color  is  followed  by  notes  of  kirsch   liqueur,  licorice,  pepper  and  spice  box,  and  a  medium  to  full-­?bodied,  richly  fruity,  sensual  wine   with  beautiful  finesse,  complexity  and  purity.  Sometimes  Grenache  can  take  on  a  complex,   Pinot  Noir-­?like  sensitivity,  and  this  cuve?e  appears  to  have  done  that.  Consumers  should  take     advantage  of  these  lovely  wines  offered  at  ridiculously  low  prices.  Drink  now-­?2017.   One  of  my  favorite  value  wineries,  Bodegas  Borsao  was  founded  in  1958  and  Jorge  Ordon?ez   has  been  bringing  these  wines  into  America  since  he  started  his  company,  Fine  Estates  From   Spain,  in  1987.  He  literally  put  the  Campo  de  Borja  appellation  on  the  map,  and  has  done   much  to  encourage  consumer  attraction  to  the  Grenache  grape  that  is  grown  in  abundance.   This  winery  owns  3,700+  acres  of  vines,  one-­?third  planted  with  Grenache  and  the  rest   Tempranillo,  Viura,  Cabernet  Sauvignon  and  Mazuelo.  All  the  vineyards  are  planted  at   relatively  high  elevations  above  1,300  feet.  The  soils  tend  to  be  poor  in  organic  material,  but   high  in  chalk/limestone  intermixed  with  sand,  iron  and  gravel.  The  hallmark  of  the  Borsao   wines  are  their  unmanipulated,  fresh,  lively  fruit  character." ~Rated by Robert Parker

Customer Reviews

4/5 stars
Bold & Fruit Forward - Even though it's a high alcohol red (15%!) it doesn't hit you hard like some (I like Molly Dooker, but a few are tough to swallow... literally.) Fruity on the nose, cherry, chocolate, intense but not overwhelming. Smooth and almost sweet. Shocked at how much better it got as it opened up. Totally worth it for the price. I'm a fan.
