"A plush texture masks the firm structure of this red, as blackberry and boysenberry flavors mingle with notes of toast, menthol and mineral, backed by well-integrated tannins and juicy acidity. A modern style, with balance and depth. Drink now through 2020." 6,000 cases imported.
Vinous Media 92
"Bright violet color. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red and dark berries, incense and candied flowers, with a smoky mineral overtone and a hint of Asian spices. Intense, deeply pitched raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola flavors stain the palate while displaying a distinctly vibrant quality. Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins coming in late to add shape and gentle grip. These bush vines date back to the early 1920s and yield less than two tons of fruit per acre."
Wine Advocate 90
"The outstanding 2014 Tres Picos (Garnacha) is 100% Grenache and comes from some of their oldest Grenache vineyards on the slopes of the Moncayo Mountains. Yields are less than two tons of fruit per acre and this wine was aged in neutral French oak and stainless-steel tanks for ten months prior to bottling. It's a beautiful wine, with plenty of Southern Rhône-like black cherry liqueur, garrigue, pepper, licorice and spice. It is medium to full-bodied, lusty and heady. This is a beauty to drink over the next 2-3 years.
Founded in 1958, this has been one of Jorge Ordoñez' most consistently reliable producers of absolutely astonishing values from the province of Zaragoza. The appellation is Campo de Borja and this winery owns a whopping 3,706 acres of vineyards, of which 3,125 are planted to Grenache! The poor soils are dominated by the chalkiness, as this is close to the Moncayo mountain range that is nearly pure chalk. It is a continental climate and the vines are relatively young, having been planted 1981-1986. The winemaking is impressive and the values that emerge from here are mind-boggling."
Superb Spanish red for an unbeatable price - Title says it all
